Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 1 day / (6 hours)


This lecture aims at providing the audience with fundamentals of methods based on Discrete Velocity Boltzmann Equations, with a particular emphasis on Lattice-Boltzmann Methods. Key elements of discretization and time integration will be discussed, along with classical CFD topics such as boundary conditions, turbulence modeling, accounting for compressibility effects, acoustic wave propagation. Illustration of the methods on academic and industrial flow configurations will be shown.
