Finite-volume lattice Boltzmann method.


We present a finite-volume formulation for the lattice Boltzmann method (FVLBM) based on standard bilinear quadrilateral elements in two dimensions. The accuracy of this scheme is demonstrated by comparing the velocity field with the analytical solution of the Navier-Stokes equations for time dependent rotating Couette flow and Taylor vortex flow.
