An isothermal implementation of Smoothed Dissipative Particle Dynamics (SDPD) for LAMMPS is presented. SDPD is useful for hydrodynamics simulations at mesoscale where the effect of thermal fluctuations are important, but a molecular dynamics simulation is prohibitively expensive. We have used this package to simulate diffusion of spherical colloids. The results (particularly the long-time behaviour of velocity autocorrelation function) are in agreement with theoretical models that take hydrodynamic interactions into account.
