Abstract

The approach called Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) is based on the resolution of the Boltzmann equation and not the Navier-Stokes ones (to notice: Navier-Stokes is an approximation of Boltzmann). LBM is based on gas kinetics theory; to obtain the macroscopic behavior of the fluid we work on a smaller physical scale (called mesoscopic) compared to conventional approaches.

This paradigm shift has several advantages. Boltzmann equations are simpler than the Navier-Stokes equations, this means a more compact solver, easier to write and maintain. Moreover arithmetic operations to be performed are local, this implies a high efficiency on parallel computers. But what makes this approach very promising for the future is its ability to handle very complex geometries without any difficulty.

Objective of the training

This training aims to provide basic knowledge in the implementation of an LBM solver.

Learning outcomes

On completion of this training course, you will be able to :

  • Understand the different algorithms present in a basic LBM code,
  • Implement these algorithms in a simplified platform,
  • Set up and simulate academic test cases not provided in the training.

Target participants

This training session is for engineers, physicists, computer scientists and numerical analysts who want to start learning LBM.

Prerequisites

In order to follow this course, you need to:

  • Knowledge of Unix commands.
  • Basic knowledge of C programming.
  • Knowledge of numerical flow simulations.

In order to verify that the prerequisites are satisfied, the following questionnaires must be completed. You need to get at least 75% of correct answers in order to be authorized to follow this training session. If you don’t succeed it, your subscription will not be validated. You only have two chances to complete it.

superadmin |  6 November 2019

Rem-Sophia MOURADI, PhD student at CERFACS  and EDF R&D Hydraulic Department, has been awarded of the "Outstanding Student Poster", during the EGU General Assembly 2019 (European Geosciences Union). This international conference gathers each year about 16 000 scientists with 6 000 oral presentations and 10 000 posters. Among the 2 500 posters presented by PhD students, fifty only are awarded with this price, that to say 2%.
