We present a novel method for simulating hydrodynamic phenomena. This particle-based method combines features from molecular dynamics and lattice-gas automata. It is shown theoretically as well as in simulations that a quantitative description of isothermal Navier-Stokes flow is obtained with relatively few particles. Computationally, the method is much faster than molecular dynamics, and the at same time it is much more flexible than lattice-gas automata schemes.
