A high-order compact finite-difference lattice Boltzmann method for simulation of steady and unsteady incompressible flows, Article International Journal for Numerical Methods in Fluids ; Vol. 75, Issue. 10 , 2014 , Pages 713-746 ; ISSN: 02712091 ; Ezzatneshan, E ; Sharif University of Technology
A high-order compact finite-difference lattice Boltzmann method (CFDLBM) is proposed and applied to accurately compute steady and unsteady incompressible flows. Herein, the spatial derivatives in the lattice Boltzmann equation are discretized by using the fourth-order compact FD scheme, and the temporal term is discretized with the fourth-order Runge-Kutta scheme to provide an accurate and efficient incompressible flow solver. A high-order spectral-type low-pass compact filter is used to stabilize the numerical solution. An iterative initialization procedure is presented and applied to generate consistent initial conditions for the simulation of unsteady flows. A sensitivity study is also...

In this work, the Chebyshev collocation spectral lattice Boltzmann method is implemented in the generalized curvilinear coordinates to provide an accurate and efficient low-speed LB-based flow solver to be capable of handling curved geometries with non-uniform grids. The low-speed form of the D2Q9 and D3Q19 lattice Boltzmann equations is transformed into the generalized curvilinear coordinates and then the spatial derivatives in the resulting equations are discretized by using the Chebyshev collocation spectral method and the temporal term is discretized with the fourth-order Runge–Kutta scheme to provide an accurate and efficient low-speed flow solver. All boundary conditions are...

In this study, the Chebyshev collocation spectral lattice Boltzmann method (CCSLBM) is developed and assessed for the computation of low-speed flows. Both steady and unsteady flows are considered here. The discrete Boltzmann equation with the Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook approximation based on the pressure distribution function is considered and the space discretization is performed by the Chebyshev collocation spectral method to achieve a highly accurate flow solver. To provide accurate unsteady solutions, the time integration of the temporal term in the lattice Boltzmann equation is made by the fourth-order Runge-Kutta scheme. To achieve numerical stability and accuracy, physical boundary...
High-order weighted essentially nonoscillatory finite-difference formulation of the lattice boltzmann method in generalized curvilinear coordinates, Article Physical Review E ; Volume 95, Issue 2 , 2017 ; 24700045 (ISSN) ; Saadat, M. H ; Taheri, S ; Sharif University of Technology
In this work, a high-order weighted essentially nonoscillatory (WENO) finite-difference lattice Boltzmann method (WENOLBM) is developed and assessed for an accurate simulation of incompressible flows. To handle curved geometries with nonuniform grids, the incompressible form of the discrete Boltzmann equation with the Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook (BGK) approximation is transformed into the generalized curvilinear coordinates and the spatial derivatives of the resulting lattice Boltzmann equation in the computational plane are solved using the fifth-order WENO scheme. The first-order implicit-explicit Runge-Kutta scheme and also the fourth-order Runge-Kutta explicit time integrating scheme are...

Dynamics of a drop under the influence of gravitational force was examined using lattice Boltzmann method and color-gradient model. The term associated with the buoyancy force caused by the density difference between the two phases was modified in the lattice Boltzmann equations and verified in some cases. The motion of n-butyl acetate drops in water was predicted in various deformation regimes. The modeling results were in good agreement with the experimental results, solutions obtained by common CFD methods and semi-empirical correlations. Contrary to the common multiphase models, the behavior of moving drops in oscillating regime was predicted with good accuracy using the present model....
