The aim of this paper is to study the fluid flow behavior around a wedge shaped body with different wedge angles placed in a channel using Lattice-Boltzmann Method (LBM). The LBM has built up on the D2Q9 model and the single relaxation time method called the Lattice-BGK (Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook) model. The influence of the gap ratio G* = G/H, where H is the distance between two parallel walls, G is the gap between body and wall, on the flow field is illustrated. The gap ratio, G*, depends on the… CONTINUE READING
