    We investigate the properties of dense suspensions and sediments of small spherical silt particles by means of a combined molecular dynamics and stochastic rotation dynamics (SRD) simulation. We include van der Waals and effective electrostatic interactions between the colloidal particles, as well as Brownian motion and hydrodynamic interactions which are calculated in the SRD part. We present the simulation technique and first results. We have measured velocity distributions, diffusion coefficients, sedimentation velocity, spatial correlation functions, and we have explored the phase diagram depending on the parameters of the potentials and on the volume fraction.
