Lattice Boltzmann modeling, fundamentals and its applications for industrial flows

Hudong CHEN, Exa Corporation, Boston

There have been nearly two decades since formation of the first lattice Boltzmann model. By now its physics and mathematic underpinning is on a much solid theoretical ground. Here the speaker is going to describe some fundamental theory of how to construct n-th order accurate lattice Boltzmann models for Navier-Stokes as well as beyond the linear non-equilibrium regime. Then the speaker is going to outline some of the key advantages associated with this method for computational fluid dynamics, and present some its recent applications for real industrial flows.
