The artificial compressibility method for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations is revived as a high order accurate numerical method (4th order in space and 2nd order in time). Similar to the lattice Boltzmann method, the mesh spacing is linked to the Mach number. The accuracy higher than that of the lattice Boltzmann method is achieved by exploiting(More)
The transport of water in nanoconfined geometries is different from bulk phase and has tremendous implications in nanotechnology and biotechnology. Here molecular dynamics is used to compute the self-diffusion coefficient D of water within nanopores, around nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes and proteins. For almost 60 different cases, D is found to scale(More)
We propose a consistent lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE) with baroclinic coupling between species and mixture dynamics to model the active scalar dynamics in multi-species mixtures. The proposed LBE model is directly derived from the linearized Boltzmann equations for mixtures and it has the following two distinctive features. First, it uses the(More)
In the present work, we illustrate the process of constructing a simplified model for complex multi-scale combustion systems. To this end, reduced models of homogeneous ideal gas mixtures of methane and air are first obtained by the novel relaxation redistribution method, and thereafter used for the extraction of all the missing variables in a reactive flow(More)
Both the artificial compressibility method and the lattice Boltzmann method yield the solutions of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in the limit of the vanishing Mach number. The inclusion of the bulk viscosity is one of the reasons for the success of the lattice Boltzmann method since it removes quickly the acoustic mode, which inevitably appears(More)
This work represents a step towards reliable algorithms for reconstructing micro-morphology of electrode materials of high-temperature proton-exchange membrane fuel cells and for performing pore-scale simulations of fluid flow (including rarefaction effects). In particular, we developed a de-terministic model for a woven gas diffusion layer (GDL) and a(More)
