We present a three-dimensional multiscale flow simulation of water past a buckyball. We employ the Schwarz alternating method to couple molecular dynamics of liquid water and the C540 fullerene with the Lattice-Boltzmann (LB) description of the Navier- Stokes (NS) equations. Our approach allows for studying nanoscale flow phenomena that are out of scope of the pure atomistic simulation.
