Mesoscopic-particle-based fluid models, such as dissipative particle dynamics, are usually assumed to be coarse-grained representations of an underlying microscopic fluid. A fundamental question is whether there exists a map from microscopic particles in these systems to the corresponding coarse-grained particles, such that the coarse-grained system has the same bulk and transport properties as the underlying system. In this letter, we investigate the coarse-graining of microscopic fluids using a Voronoi-type projection that has been suggested in several studies. The simulations show that the projection fails in defining coarse-grained particles that have a physically meaningful connection to the microscopic fluid. In particular, the Voronoi projection produces identical coarse-grained equilibrium properties when applied to systems with different microscopic interactions and different bulk properties. © EPLA, 2009
