Abstract:

An approach to lattice Boltzmann simulation is described, which makes a direct connection between classical kinetic theory and contemporary lattice Boltzmann modeling methods. This approach can lead to greater accuracy, improved numerical stability and significant reductions in computational needs, while giving a new philosophical point of view to lattice Bolzmann calculations for a large range of applications.
