In this study, we simulate the motion and reformation of polymer chain in the nanoscale fluid flow motion of the DPD (Dissipative Particle Dynamics) solvent. The behavior of polymer chain through DPD solvent is studied for 2D and 3D considerations. We implement two body forces of Poiseuille flow and electroosmotic flow to the DPD fluid particles. In case of the electroosmotic flow force, we show that the movement of polymer chain via the electroosmotic phenomenon provides less dispersion than that of the Poiseuille flow for the same polymer chain movement.
