Recently, a minimal kinetic model for fluid flow, known as entropic lattice Boltzmann method, has been proposed for the simulation of isothermal hydrodynamic flows. At variance with previous Lattice Boltzmann methods, the entropic version permits to describe the non-linear dynamics of short scales in a controlled and stable way. In this paper, we provide the first numerical evidence that the entropic lattice Boltzmann scheme provides a quantitatively correct description of the large-scale…

Entropic multi-relaxation time lattice Boltzmann model for complex flows
Entropic lattice Boltzmann methods were introduced to overcome the stability issues of lattice Boltzmann models for high Reynolds number turbulent flows. However, to date their validity has been
Simulation of turbulent flows with the entropic multirelaxation time lattice Boltzmann method on body-fitted meshes
We propose a body-fitted mesh approach based on a semi-Lagrangian streaming step combined with an entropy-based collision model. After determining the order of convergence of the method, we analyse
Stability and stabilization of the lattice Boltzmann method.
It is proven that in order to guarantee second-order accuracy the distribution should belong to a distinguished surface--the invariant film (up to second order in the time step) which is the trajectory of the (quasi)equilibrium distribution surface under free flight.

Invariance correction to Grad’s equations: where to go beyond approximations?
We review some recent developments of Grad’s approach to solving the Boltzmann equation and creating a reduced description. The method of the invariant manifold is put forward as a unified principle


Entropic lattice Boltzmann methods
It is demonstrated that entropically stabilized lattice Boltzmann algorithms, while fully explicit and perfectly conservative, may achieve remarkably low values for transport coefficients, such as viscosity, and holds promise for high‐Reynolds‐number simulations of the Navier‐Stokes equations.

The paper presents large-eddy simulation (LES) formalism, along with the various subgrid-scale models developed since Smagorinsky’s model. We show how Kraichnan’s spectral eddy viscosity may be

Abstract The test-field model for isotropic turbulence is used to examine the effective eddy viscosity acting on wavenumbers km. In both two and three dimensions, the effective eddy viscosity for
