We present a generalization of dissipative particle dynamics that includes shear forces between particles. The new algorithm has the same structure as the (isothermal) smoothed particle dynamics algorithm, except that it conserves angular momentum and includes thermal fluctuations consistently with the principles of equilibrium statistical mechanics. This clarifies the connection of dissipative particle dynamics with numerical resolution algorithms of the macroscopic Navier-Stokes equations.
