Abstract Mesoscopic, coarse grained models of phase transitions are of interest for their potential to simulate the transient ?ne scale structure associated with rapid phase transitions and the equilibrium properties of multi-phase systems. The van der Waals square gradient model provides a convenient equation of state for a ?uid with a liquid and vapour phase. A three dimensional smooth particle hydrodynamics code was developed in order to investigate the ?delity with which this numerical technique captures the behaviour of the van der Waals model, parameterised for water in conditions of liquid-vapour coexistence. Our code is capable of modelling small to medium sized systems of the order of several thousands of particles in three dimensions, at scales of 10-100 nanometres.
