    Determination of Physical Properties of Porous Materials by a Lattice Boltzmann Approach

    M.R. Arab1,2, E. Semma3, B. Pateyron1, M. El Ganaoui1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.5, No.2, pp. 161-176, 2009, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2009.005.161

    Abstract In this work, flows in porous media are simulated by using a Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM). A model D2Q9 with a single collision operator is proposed. This method is applied on 2D digital images obtained by a Scanning Electron Microscope technique (SEM), and followed by a special treatment in order to obtain an image of synthesis that is finally read by the numerical code. The first results tested on two-dimensional configurations show the reliability of this strategy in simulating with a good accuracy phenomena of heat and mass transport. The numerical study is extended to More >

    Numerical Study of Natural Convection in an Inclined Triangular Cavity for Different Thermal Boundary Conditions: Application of the Lattice Boltzmann Method

    Ahmed Mahmoudi1,2, Imen Mejri1, Mohamed Ammar Abbassi1, Ahmed Omri1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.9, No.4, pp. 353-388, 2013, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2013.009.353

    Abstract A double-population Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) is applied to solve the steady-state laminar natural convective heat-transfer problem in a triangular cavity filled with air (Pr = 0.71). Two different boundary conditions are implemented for the vertical and inclined boundaries: Case I) adiabatic vertical wall and inclined isothermal wall, Case II) isothermal vertical wall and adiabatic inclined wall. The bottom wall is assumed to be at a constant temperature (isothermal) for both cases. The buoyancy effect is modeled in the framework of the well-known Boussinesq approximation. The velocity and temperature fields are determined by a D2Q9 More >

    Numerical Study of Double Diffusive Convection in presence of Radiating Gas in a Square Cavity

    F. Moufekkir1, M.A. Moussaoui1, A. Mezrhab1,2, H. Naji3,4, M. Bouzidi5

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.8, No.2, pp. 129-154, 2012, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2012.008.129

    Abstract The problem related to coupled double diffusive convection in a square enclosure filled with a gray gas in the presence of volumetric radiation is examined numerically. The horizontal walls are assumed to be insulated and impermeable. Different temperatures and species concentrations are imposed at vertical walls. In particular, we propose a 2-D numerical approach based on a hybrid scheme combining a multiple-relaxation-time lattice Boltzmann model (MRT-LBM) and a standard finite difference method (FDM). The radiative term in the energy equation is treated using the discrete ordinates method (DOM) with a S8 quadrature. The influence of… More >

    A Direct Forcing Immersed Boundary Method Based Lattice Boltzmann Method to Simulate Flows with Complex Geometry

    Cheng-Hsiu Yang1, Cheng Chang1, Chao-An Lin1,2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.11, No.3, pp. 209-228, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.011.209

    Abstract In the present study, a lattice Boltzmann method based new immersed boundary technique is proposed for simulating two-dimensional viscous incompressible flows interacting with stationary and moving solid boundaries. The lattice Boltzmann method with known force field is used to simulate the flow where the complex geometry is immersed inside the computational domain. This is achieved via direct-momentum forcing on a Cartesian grid by combining "solid-body forcing" at solid nodes and interpolation on neighboring fluid nodes. The proposed method is examined by simulating decaying vortex, 2D flow over an asymmetrically placed cylinder, and in-line oscillating cylinder More >
