The problem of stability of colloids recently begins to attract extra attention in construction materials science. This is due to numerous attempts to employ different kind of nanoscale modifiers for production of building materials with enhanced operational properties. Problems of stability and coagulation in colloidal dispersions are studied for several decades, and numerous results were already obtained within framework of Smoluchowski coagulation theory. In the present work we have performed numerical study of the flocculation process and compared the results with well-known ones. It was shown that even for complex pairwise potential the kinetics of number density for isolated particles is not very different from the kinetics which corresponds to constant coagulation kernel. However, for number density of many-particle aggregates we have observed number of peculiarities, including semi-periodic behavior.
