Diffusive-ballistic heat transport in thin films was simulated using energy conserving dissipative particle dynamics (DPDe). The solution domain was considered to be two-dimensional and DPD particles were distributed in the solution domain uniformly under constant temperature boundary conditions at the top and bottom walls and periodic boundary at the side walls. The effects of phonon mean free path was incorporated by its relation to the cutoff radius of energy interaction. This cutoff radius was obtained based on Knudsen number using the existing phonon-boundary scattering models. The simulations for 0.1 < Kn < 10 were conducted with the different modifications of the cutoff radius. The results were presented in form of temperature profile across the thin film and were compared with the semi-analytical solution of the equation of phonon radiative transport (EPRT). The discrepancy of the simulations without the phonon mean free path modification was less than 15% with EPRT. Good agreement with EPRT to within 5% was obtained when the phonon-boundary scattering effects were included.
