In the present study we examine the thermodynamic consistency of lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE) models that are based on the forcing method by comparing different numerical treatments of the LBE for van der Waals fluids. The different models are applied for the calculation of bulk and interfacial thermodynamic properties at various temperatures. The(More)
The problem of flow and mass transport within an assemblage of spherical solid absorbers is investigated. We present and compare results from the numerical solution of the convection-diffusion equation in the sphere-in-cell geometry and in stochastically constructed 3-D spherical particle assemblages. In the first case, we make use of an analytical solution(More)
1. Introduction Disordered nano-porous solids play nowadays a key role in several industrial processes. Both equilibrium and dynamic processes, that take place within nano-pores, are sensitive functions of the topology and the geometrical disorder of the pore matrix. Thorough analysis of adsorption data, implementation of modern techniques (such as AFM,(More)

In the present study we propose a lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE) model derived from density gradient expansions of the discrete BBGKY evolution equations. The model is based on the mechanical approach of the gradient theory of interfaces. The basic input is the radial distribution function, which is related exclusively to the molecular interaction(More)
The development of algorithms about 50 years ago gave to the scientific community an extremely powerful tool, allowing the utilization of digital computers to simulate and predict the thermodynamic, structural and dynamic properties of bulk fluids. The most widely used simulation methods for molecular systems are Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics. These(More)
