Towards a consistent lattice Boltzmann model for two-phase fluid

  title={Towards a consistent lattice Boltzmann model for two-phase fluid},
  author={S. A. Hosseini and Benedikt Dorschner and I. V. Karlin},
We propose a kinetic framework for single-component non-ideal isothermal flows. Starting from a kinetic model for a non-ideal fluid, we show that under conventional scaling the Navier-Stokes equations with a non-ideal equation of state are recovered in the hydrodynamic limit. A scaling based on the smallness of velocity increments is then introduced, which recovers the full Navier-Stokes-Korteweg equations. The proposed model is realized on a standard lattice and validated on a variety of… 

Mesoscale Modelling of the Tolman Length in Multi-component Systems

An extensive set of simulations are performed and the first example of tunable Tolman length in the mesoscopic model is presented, being zero for symmetric interactions and different from zero otherwise, paving the way for controlling such interface properties which are paramount in presence of thermal fluctuations.

Entropic multi-relaxation-time lattice Boltzmann model for large density ratio two-phase flows

. We propose a multiple relaxation time entropic realization of a two-phase flow lattice Boltzmann model we introduced in earlier works [S.A. Hosseini, B. Dorschner, and I. V. Karlin, arXiv preprint,



Momentum transfer of a Boltzmann-lattice fluid with boundaries

We study the velocity boundary condition for curved boundaries in the lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE). We propose a LBE boundary condition for moving boundaries by combination of the “bounce-back”

A unified lattice Boltzmann model and application to multiphase flows

A ULBM framework that can seamlessly integrate the widely used lattice Boltzmann collision operators, including the Bhatnagar–Gross–Krook or single-relation- time, multiple-relaxation-time, central-moment or cascaded latticeboltzmann method and multiple entropic operators (KBC).

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.

Mesoscale perspective on the Tolman length.

We demonstrate that the multiphase Shan-Chen lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) yields a curvature dependent surface tension σ as computed from three-dimensional hydrostatic droplets and bubbles

Mesoscopic modeling of a two-phase flow in the presence of boundaries: The contact angle.

We present a mesoscopic model, based on the Boltzmann equation, for the interaction between a solid wall and a nonideal fluid. We present an analytic derivation of the contact angle in terms of the

Thermodynamic consistency of a pseudopotential lattice Boltzmann fluid with interface curvature.

The effect of Laplace pressure on phase equilibrium is quantitatively consistent with Kelvin equation at high reduced temperatures and at low temperatures, and inconsistency that can be attributed to the effect of orientation of the interface was noted, and it can be improved by tuning of the pseudopotential.

Extended lattice Boltzmann model for gas dynamics

It is demonstrated that the present model provides an accurate representation of compressible flows, even in the presence of turbulence and shock waves.

Thermokinetic lattice Boltzmann model of nonideal fluids.

We present a kinetic model for nonideal fluids, where the local thermodynamic pressure is imposed through appropriate rescaling of the particle's velocities, accounting for both long- and short-range
