Abstract

Due to the mesoscopic and kinetic nature, the lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE) method has become an efficient and powerful tool for modeling and simulating interfacial dynamics of multi-phase flows. In this work we discuss several fundamental properties of two-phase LBE models. Particularly, the effects of force discretization, spurious currents in the vicinity of interfaces, and checkerboard effects with the underlying lattices, are investigated.

Keywords

Two-phase flows, lattice Boltzmann equation.
