Abstract: Giving an overview of Nottingham group’s recent progress on numerical modelling and approaches in developing and applying the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM), the paper tries to demonstrate that the LBM is a useful tool for mesoscale modelling of single phase and multiphase flow. The variety of applications of the LBM modelling is reported, which include single phase fluid flow and heat transfer around or across rotational cylinder of curved boundary, two-phase flow in mixing layer, electroosmotically driven flow in thin liquid layer, bubbles/drops flow and coalescence in conventional channels and in microchannels with confined boundary, liquid droplets in gas with relative large density ratio; viscous fingering phenomena of immiscible fluids displacement, and flow in porous media.
Description: This paper was presented at the 2nd Micro and Nano Flows Conference (MNF2009), which was held at Brunel University, West London, UK. The conference was organised by Brunel University and supported by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, IPEM, the Italian Union of Thermofluid dynamics, the Process Intensification Network, HEXAG - the Heat Exchange Action Group and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
