Multiphase Lattice Boltzmann Modelling : Introduction for geoscientists and engineers / von Michael C. Sukop, Daniel T. Thorne


Lattice Boltzmann models have a remarkable ability to simulate multiphase fluids. A rich variety of behaviours, including phase separation, evaporation, condensation, cavitation, buoyancy, and interactions with surfaces can readily be simulated. This book provides a basic introduction that emphasizes intuition and simplistic conceptualization of processes. It avoids the more difficult mathematics that underlies LB models. The model is viewed from a particle perspective where collisions, streaming, and particle-particle/particle-surface interactions constitute the entire conceptual framework. Beginners and those with more interest in model application than detailed mathematical foundations will find this a powerful 'quick start' guide. Example simulations, exercises, and computer codes are included.
