Artificial compressibility method revisited: Asymptotic numerical method for incompressible Navier-Stokes equations
TLDR
The artificial compressibility method for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations is revived as a high order accurate numerical method (fourth order in space and second order in time). Expand

A Lattice Boltzmann Formulation for the Analysis of Radiative Heat Transfer Problems in a Participating Medium
Use of the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) has been extended to analyze radiative transport problems in an absorbing, emitting, and scattering medium. In terms of collision and streaming, the presentExpand

Factorization symmetry in the lattice Boltzmann method
A non-perturbative algebraic theory of the lattice Boltzmann method is developed based on the symmetry of a product. It involves three steps: (i) Derivation of admissible lattices in one spatialExpand

Link-wise artificial compressibility method
TLDR
The artificial compressibility method for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations is (link-wise) reformulated (referred to as LW-ACM) by a finite set of discrete directions (links) on a regular Cartesian mesh, in analogy with the lattice Boltzmann method. Expand

Lattice Boltzmann simulations of 2D laminar flows past two tandem cylinders
TLDR
We apply the lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE) with multiple-relaxation-time (MRT) collision model to simulate laminar flows in two-dimensions (2D). Expand

Lattice-Boltzmann simulations of the thermally driven 2D square cavity at high Rayleigh numbers
TLDR
The thermal lattice Boltzmann equation (TLBE) with multiple-relaxation-times (MRT) collision model is used to simulate the steady thermal convective flows in the two-dimensional square cavity with differentially heated vertical walls at high Rayleigh numbers. Expand
