The Lattice Boltzmann Equation

Oxford University Press

The dynamics of reactive flows lies at the heart of several important applications, such as combustion, heterogeneous catalysis, pollutant conversion, pattern formation in biology and many others. In general, LB is well suited to describe reaction-diffusion applications with flowing species. This chapter provides the basic guidelines to include reactive phenomena within the LBE formalism. Reactive flows obey the usual fluid equations, augmented with a reactive source term, accounting for species transformations due to chemical reactions. Such term comes typically in the form of a polynomial product of the mass densities of the reacting species.

Keywords:   Chemical reactions, reactive flows, combustion, pattern formation, reaction-diffusion equations
