Chemical-potential multiphase lattice Boltzmann method with superlarge density ratios.

A chemical-potential multiphase lattice Boltzmann method is constructed to realize extremely large density ratios and an upper limit of the chemical potential is used to reduce the influence of nonphysical factors and improve the stability.

Aqueous humor dynamics in human eye: A lattice Boltzmann study.

A lattice Boltzmann model is presented to simulate the aqueous humor dynamics in the human eye by involving incompressible Navier-Stokes flow, heat convection and diffusion, and Darcy seepage flow to provide an alternative tool and theoretical reference for the study of AH dynamics.

Multiphase curved boundary condition in lattice Boltzmann method.

The boundary treatment is fundamental for modeling fluid flows especially in the lattice Boltzmann method; the curved boundary conditions effectively improve the accuracy of single-phase simulations

The improved pseudopotential LB model is numerically validated via the simulations of stationary droplet and droplet oscillation and it is found that a lower liquid viscosity can be gained in the pseudopotentials model by increasing the kinematic viscosities ratio between the vapor and liquid phases.

Assessment of interaction potential in simulating nonisothermal multiphase systems by means of lattice Boltzmann modeling.

The PP-LBM is analyzed with the view to simulate single-component (non-isothermal multiphase systems at large density ratios and in spite of the presence of spurious velocities and the performance of two popular potential terms and of various implementation schemes for these potential terms is examined.

Lattice Boltzmann Methods for Multiphase Flow Simulations across Scales

The simulation of multiphase flows is an outstanding challenge, due to the inherent complexity of the underlying physical phenomena and to the fact that multiphase flows are very diverse in nature,

Thermodynamic-consistent lattice Boltzmann model for nonideal fluids

A lattice Boltzmann model to simulate phase separation and two-phase flow is proposed and has a tunable parameter κ, which can be used to reduce the effect of spurious current and adjust the surface tension to meet the requirements of researches.

Lattice Boltzmann models for nonideal fluids with arrested phase-separation.

The effects of midrange repulsion in lattice Boltzmann models on the coalescence and/or breakup behavior of single-component, nonideal fluids are investigated and a pseudopotential energy is defined, which is found to behave similar to a quasiconserved quantity for most of the time evolution.

Contact angles in the pseudopotential lattice Boltzmann modeling of wetting.

The proposed modified pseudopotential-based interaction performs better in light of the maximum and the minimum densities and is overall more suitable for simulating large contact angles θ>90^{∘} as compared with the two other types of fluid-solid interactions.
