The goal of this article is to contribute to a more precise discussion of the question whether Lattice-Boltzmann (LB) methods can be regarded as efficient CFD solvers. After a short review of the basic model and recommendable extensions, we compare the accuracy and computational efficiency of two research simulation codes based on the LB and the(More)
In this contribution a numerical study of a turbulent jet flow is presented. The simulation results of two different variants of the Lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) are compared. The first is the well-established D3Q19 MRT model extended by a Smagorinsky Large Eddy Simulation (LES) model. The second is the D3Q27 Factorized Cascaded Lattice Boltzmann (FCLB)(More)
We present a software prototype for fluid flow problems in civil engineering, which combines essential features of Computational Steering approaches with efficient methods for model transfer and high performance computing. The main components of the system are described:-The modeler with a focus on the data management of the product model-The pre-processing(More)
A lattice Boltzmann model for incompressible axisymmetric flow is proposed in this paper. Unlike previous axisymmetric lattice Boltzmann models, which were based on "primitive-variables" Navier-Stokes equations, the target macroscopic equations of the present model are vorticity-stream-function formulations. Due to the intrinsic features of(More)
The results of an investigation in developing a generalized toolkit for Quadtree based Finite Volume models, exemplarily applied on the Shallow Water Equations, are given in this report. The developed application model: (i) discretizes a given topography using a quadtree-based grid system and (ii) solves the Shallow Water Equations by a numerical method(More)
