Lattice Boltzmann for Non-Ideal Fluids

(p.480) 27 Lattice Boltzmann for Non-Ideal Fluids
The Lattice Boltzmann Equation

Sauro Succi

Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with the extension of the LB methodology to the case of non-ideal fluids, i.e., fluids in which potential energy can no longer be neglected as compared to kinetic energy. The macroscopic consequences are major, primarily phase-transitions and attendant interface formation, which lie at the heart of the physics of multiphase and multicomponent flows, a branch of the physics of fluids with numerous applications in modern science and engineering.

Keywords:   non-ideal fluids, potential energy, phase-transitions, multiphase flows, interface dynamics
