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)
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)
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)
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)
A boundary condition-enforced immersed boundary-lattice Boltzmann method (IB-LBM) for the simulation of particulate flows is presented in this paper. In general, the immersed boundary method (IBM) utilizes a discrete set of force density to represent the effect of boundary. In the conventional IB-LBM, such force density is pre-determined, which cannot(More)
A version of immersed boundary-lattice Boltzmann method (IB-LBM) is proposed in this work. It is based on the lattice Boltzmann equation with external forcing term proposed by Guo et al. [Z. Guo, C. Zheng, B. Shi, Discrete lattice effects on the forcing term in the lattice Boltzmann method, Phys. Rev. E 65 (2002) 046308], which can well consider the effect(More)
The immersed boundary–lattice Boltzmann method was presented recently to simulate the rigid particle motion. It combines the desirable features of the lattice Boltzmann and immersed boundary methods. It uses a regular Eulerian grid for the flow domain and a Lagrangian grid for the boundary. For the lattice Boltzmann method, as compared with the(More)
