A novel immersed boundary velocity correction–lattice Boltzmann method is presented and validated in this work by its application to simulate the two-dimensional flow over a circular cylinder. The present approach is inspired from the conventional immersed boundary method (IBM). In the conventional IBM, the effect of rigid body on the surrounding flow is(More)
A lattice Boltzmann model for simulating multiphase flows with large density ratios is described in this paper. The method is easily implemented. It does not require solving the Poisson equation and does not involve the complex treatments of derivative terms. The interface capturing equation is recovered without any additional terms as compared to other(More)
Microflow has become a popular field of interest due to the advent of microelectromechanical systems. In this work, the lattice Boltzmann method, a particle-based approach, is applied to simulate the two-dimensional isothermal pressure driven microchannel flow. Two boundary treatment schemes are incorporated to investigate their impacts to the entire flow(More)
We investigate the applicability of an incompressible diffuse interface model for two-phase incompressible fluid flows with large viscosity and density contrasts. Diffuse-interface models have been used previously primarily for density-matched fluids, and it remains unclear to what extent such models can be used for fluids of different density, thereby(More)
In this paper, a solution-adaptive algorithm is presented for the simulation of incompressible viscous flows. The framework of this method consists of an adaptive local stencil refinement algorithm and 3-points central difference discretization. The adaptive local stencil refinement is designed in such a manner that 5-points symmetric stencil is guaranteed(More)
SUMMARY The axisymmetric flows with swirl or rotation were solved by a hybrid scheme with lattice Boltzmann method for the axial and radial velocities and finite-difference method for the azimuthal (or swirl) velocity and the temperature. An incompressible axisymmetric lattice Boltzmann D2Q9 model was proposed to solve the axial and radial velocities(More)

Silique length (SL) and seed weight (SW) are two important yield-related traits controlled by quantitative trait loci (QTL) in oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.). The genetic bases underlying these two traits are largely unknown at present. In this study, we conducted QTL analyses for SL and SW using 186 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from a cross(More)
