Progress in the application of lattice Boltzmann method for turbulent flows Conference Paper uri icon


  • We present a review of applications of the Lattice Boltzmann Method in turbulent flows. Canonical flows of interest to off-shore (coastal) engineering are highlighted. Such flows include turbulence with thermal gradients, turbulence with frame rotation, turbulence subject to periodic shear, two-fluid turbulent jets and flows past bluff bodies. LBM turbulence calculations at all levels-direct numerical simulations (DNS), large eddy simulations (LES) and Reynolds averaged Navier- Stokes simulations (RANS)-Are investigated. The theoretical challenges and computational advantages of LBM turbulence calculations are detailed. Copyright 2012 by the International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE).
