Abstract

We review the recent progress and successful applications of lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) to computational fluid dynamics. To clarify the important issue in the LBM simulation, this report shows the recent progress in the LBM, and summarizes both the advantages and disadvantages of the LBM. We also discuss the immersed boundary-lattice Boltzmann method (IB-LBM) that has received much attention in recent years. Due to the common feature of using the Cartesian mesh, the IB-LBM successfully calculates the rigid particle motions in a viscous fluid. We present one of key issues in the IB-LBM, and examine the applicability of the Immersed Boundary Method to the lattice kinetic scheme (LKS) for particulate flow.
