The energy conserving formulation of the Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) mesoscale method for multicomponent systems is analyzed thoroughly. A new framework is established by identifying the dimensionless groups using general scaling factors. When the scaling factors are chosen based on the solvent in a multicomponent system, the reduced system of equations can easily be solved computationally. Simulation results are presented for one dimensional transient and steady-state heat conduction in a random DPD solid, which compare well with existing published and analytical solutions. This model is extended to two dimensions and shows excellent agreement with the analytical solution.
