In this paper, three-dimensional (3D) multi-relaxation time (MRT) lattice-Boltzmann (LB) models for multiphase flow are presented. In contrast to the Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook (BGK) model, a widely employed kinetic model, in MRT models the rates of relaxation processes owing to collisions of particle populations may be independently adjusted. As a result, the(More)
In this paper, an approach to simulating magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flows based on the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) is presented. The dynamics of the flow are simulated using a so-called multiple relaxation time (MRT) lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE), in which a source term is included for the Lorentz force. The evolution of the magnetic induction is(More)
In this paper, we discuss the incorporation of dynamic subgrid scale (SGS) models in the lattice-Boltzmann method (LBM) for large-eddy simulation (LES) of turbulent flows. The use of a dynamic procedure, which involves sampling or test-filtering of super-grid turbulence dynamics and subsequent use of scale-invariance for two levels , circumvents the need(More)
Received (received date) Revised (revised date) In this paper, computations of transient, incompressible, turbulent, plane jets using the discrete lattice BGK Boltzmann equation are reported. ´ A priori derivation of the discrete lattice BGK Boltzmann equation with a spatially and temporally dependent relaxation time parameter, which is used to represent(More)
The lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) is becoming increasingly popular for the computational simulation of fluid flow. This approach is based on kinetic theory, and considers the evolution of distributions of particles on a lattice whose collective behaviour represents that of the equations governing the motion of fluids. The use of the LBM is attractive as it(More)
Several applications exist in which lattice Boltzmann methods (LBM) are used to compute stationary states of fluid motions, particularly those driven or modulated by external forces. Standard LBM, being explicit time-marching in nature, requires a long time to attain steady state convergence, particularly at low Mach numbers due to the disparity in(More)
