We investigate the applicability of a mesoscale modeling approach, lattice Boltzmann simulations, to the problem of contact line motion in one and two component, two phase fluids. In this, the first of two papers, we consider liquid-gas systems. Careful implementation of the thermodynamic boundary condition allows us to fix the static contact angle in the… (More)
We developed a new lattice Boltzmann method that allows the simulation of two-phase flow of viscoelastic liquid mixtures. We used this new method to simulate a bubble rising in a viscoelastic fluid and were able to reproduce the experimentally observed cusp at the trailing end of the bubble.
