In the present study, we have derived an expression for transport coefficients such as viscosity, from the equation of motion of dissipative particles. In the concrete, we have shown the Fokker-Planck equation in phase space, and macroscopic conservation equations such as the equation of continuity and the equation of momentum conservation. The basic equations of the single-particle and pair distribution functions have been derived using the Fokker-Planck equation. The solutions of these distribution functions have approximately been solved by the perturbation method under the assumption of molecular chaos. The expression of the viscosity due to dissipative forces has been obtained using the approximate solutions of the distribution functions. Also, we have conducted non-equilibrium dynamics simulations to investigate the influence of the parameters, which have appeared in defining the equation of motion in the dissipative particle dynamics method.
