Abstract

Numerical simulations of complex fluids often suffer from incommensurability of the intrinsic lengthscales and the simulation box size. In search of the mesoscopic equilibrium structures of fluids with multiple intrinsic lengths, we devised a new boundary scheme for coarse-grained Ginzburg-Landau models. For demonstration, simulations of diblock copolymer blends in lamellar-lamellar coexistence and the twist grain boundary state of chiral liquid crystals are performed.
