When boiling occurs in a liquid flow field, the phenomenon is known as forced-convection boiling. We numerically investigate such a boiling system on a cylinder at a saturated condition. To deal with the complicated liquid-vapor phase-change phenomenon, we develop a numerical scheme based on the pseudopotential lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). The collision stage is performed in the space of central moments (CMs) to enhance numerical stability for high Reynolds numbers. The adopted forcing… 
Pore-Scale Study on Convective Drying of Porous Media.
In this work, a numerical model for isothermal liquid-vapor phase change (evaporation) of the two-component air-water system is proposed based on the pseudopotential lattice Boltzmann method. Through
Experimental study of two-phase heat transfer of droplet impact on liquid film
Spray cooling is an effective heat transfer technique capable of handling high heat fluxes and temperatures. The study of droplet impact offers a simplified approach to understanding the fundamentals
A Comparative Study of 3d Cumulant and Central Moments Lattice Boltzmann Schemes with Interpolated Boundary Conditions for the Simulation of Thermal flows in High Prandtl Number Regime
Thermal flows characterized by high Prandtl number are numerically challenging as the transfer of momentum and heat occurs at di ff erent time scales. To account for very low thermal conductivity and
Droplet evaporation in finite-size systems: Theoretical analysis and mesoscopic modeling.
The classical D^{2}-Law states that the square of the droplet diameter decreases linearly with time during its evaporation process, i.e., D^{2}(t)=D_{0}^{2}-Kt, where D_{0} is the droplet initial
One-stage simplified lattice Boltzmann method for two- and three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic flows
This paper proposes a new simplified lattice Boltzmann method (SLBM) for magnetohydrodynamic flows that outperforms the classical one in terms of accuracy, while preserving its advantages, and is an excellent candidate to perform numerical simulations of two- and three-dimensional magnetohydRodynamic flows.

Numerical Simulation of Saturated Film Boiling on a Horizontal Surface
The past efforts in applying linear Taylor instability theory to the prediction of heat transfer during film boiling on a horizontal surface have suffered from the fact that empirical correlations
Convection in multiphase fluid flows using lattice Boltzmann methods.
High-resolution numerical simulations of convection in multiphase flows (boiling) using a novel algorithm based on a lattice Boltzmann method show that in the presence of nucleating bubbles non-Oberbeck-Boussinesq effects develop, the mean temperature profile becomes asymmetric, and heat-transfer and heat -transfer fluctuations are enhanced, at all Ra studied.

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.
