We present a new formulation of dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) that leads to correct hydrodynamics in flows around bluff bodies represented by a single particle. In particular, we introduce a shear drag coefficient and a corresponding term in the dissipative force, which along with the angular momentum incorporate non-central shear forces between particles and preserve angular momentum. We consider several prototype flows to verify the performance of the proposed formulation with comparisons against theoretical and continuum-based simulation results. Our method is similar to the Fluid Particle Method (FPM) of Espanol (Phys. Rev. E, 57 (1998) 2930) and it has the computational and implementation simplicity of the standard DPD approach.
