    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.1, No.2, pp. 1-11, 2010, DOI:10.5098/hmt.v1.2.3002

    Abstract Multi-phase lattice Boltzmann method is applied to investigate liquid water transport in th GDL and GC. The liquid water transport processes in the GDL, near the GDL-GC interfaces and in the GC are discussed. The effects of channel land on liquid water dynamic behaviors and distribution in the GDL and GC are investigated. It is found that channel land covers the GDL-GC interface where liquid water reaches changes the water distribution near the GDL-GC interface and in the GC. While channel land is apart from the GDL-GC interface where liquid water reaches changes the effects More >

    Amplitude and Period Effect on Heat Transfer in an Enclosure with Sinusoidal Heating from Below Using Lattice Boltzmann Method

    Noureddine Abouricha1,*, Chouaib Ennawaoui1,2, Mustapha El Alami3

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.21, pp. 523-537, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fhmt.2023.045914

    Abstract This work presents a simulation of the phenomena of natural convection in an enclosure with a variable heating regime by the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). We consider a square enclosure of side H filled with air (Pr = 0.71) and heated from below, with a hot portion of length L = 0.8 H, by imposing a sinusoidal temperature. The unheated segments of the bottom wall are treated as adiabatic, and one of the vertical walls features a cold region, while the remaining walls remain adiabatic. The outcomes of the two-dimensional (2D) problem are depicted through isotherms, streamlines, More >

    Abstract The objective of this investigation is to assess the effect of obstacles on numerical heat transfer and fluid flow momentum in a rectangular microchannel (MC). Two distinct configurations were studied: one without obstacles and the other with alternating obstacles placed on the upper and lower walls. The research utilized the thermal lattice Boltzmann method (LBM), which solves the energy and momentum equations of fluids with the BGK approximation, implemented in a Python coding environment. Temperature jump and slip velocity conditions were utilized in the simulation for the MC and extended to all obstacle boundaries. The… More >

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.12, pp. 1-12, 2019, DOI:10.5098/hmt.12.5

    Abstract In this work, heat transfer enhancement in a microchannel using water-Ag nanofluid has been investigated numerically by the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) by adopting the stream and collide algorithm, with the (BGK) approximation. The base fluid and the suspended nanoparticles are considered as a homogeneous mixture. And single phase model with first order slip and jump boundary conditions has been adopted. Thermophysical properties of water-Ag nanofluid are estimated by the theoretical models. Effects of change in nanoparticle volume fractions, Reynolds number and Knudsen number are considered. It was concluded that change in nanoparticle volume fractions More >

    Effect of Particle Orientation on Heat Transfer in Arrays of Prolate Particles

    Romana Basit1, Xinyang Li1, Zheqing Huang1, Qiang Zhou1,2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.136, No.2, pp. 1509-1526, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.025308

    Abstract Direct Numerical Simulations have been carried out to study the forced convection heat transfer of flow through fixed prolate particles for a variety of aspect ratios ar = {5/4, 5/3, 5/1} with Reynolds number (Re) up to 100. Three variations of the solid volume fraction c = {0.1, 0.2, 0.3} with four Hermans orientation factors S = {−0.5, 0, 0.5, 1} are studied. It has been found that changes in S cause prominent variations in the Nusselt number. In general, Nusselt number increases with the decrease of S. For all three aspect ratios, the Nusselt number remains More > Graphic Abstract

    Lattice Boltzmann Simulation of Nanoparticle Transport and Attachment in a Microchannel Heat Sink

    Xiaokang Tian1, Kai Yue1,2,*, Yu You1,2, Yongjian Niu1, Xinxin Zhang1,2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.17, No.2, pp. 301-317, 2021, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2021.013521

    Abstract The heat transfer performances of a microchannel heat sink in the presence of a nanofluid can be affected by the attachment of nanoparticle (NP) on the microchannel wall. In this study, the mechanisms underlying NP transport and attachment are comprehensively analyzed by means of a coupled double-distribution-function lattice Boltzmann model combined with lattice-gas automata. Using this approach, the temperature distribution and the two-phase flow pattern are obtained for different values of the influential parameters. The results indicate that the number of attached NPs decrease exponentially as their diameter and the fluid velocity grow. An increase… More >

    Energy Engineering, Vol.118, No.1, pp. 15-36, 2021, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.011237

    Abstract The magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD) effect is studied at different inclined angles in Rayleigh-Bénard (RB) convection inside a rectangular enclosure using the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). The enclosure is filled with electrically conducting fluids of different characteristics. These characteristics are defined by Prandtl number, Pr.

    On the Application of the Lattice Boltzmann Method to Predict Soil Meso Seepage Characteristics

    Dong Zhou1,*, Zhuoying Tan2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.16, No.5, pp. 903-917, 2020, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2020.010363

    Abstract In this study, a two-dimensional approach is elaborated to study with the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) the seepage of water in the pores of a soil. Firstly, the D2Q9 model is selected to account for the discrete velocity distribution of water flow. In particular, impermeability is considered as macroscopic boundary condition for the left and right domain sides, while the upper and lower boundaries are assumed to behave as pressure boundaries controlled by different densities. The micro-boundary conditions are implemented through the standard rebound strategy and a non-equilibrium extrapolation scheme. Matlab is used for the… More >

    K. Suga, T. Ito

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.18, No.4, pp. 99-100, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.018.099

    Abstract Evaluation and optimization of the multiple-relaxation-time (MRT) lattice Boltzmann method for micro-flows (micro-flow LBM) are performed with the two-dimensional nine discrete velocity (D2Q9) model. The MRT micro-flow LBM consisting of the combination of bounce-back and full diffusive (CBBFD) wall boundary condition is considered. Based on the discussion of Chai et al. (2010), the presently applied CBBFD model and relaxation time for heat flux satisfy the second-order slip boundary condition. However, modification to the MRT model of Chai et al. (MRT-C) is made to the relaxation time for the moments related to the stress by introducing… More >
