The course is addressed to both PhD and MSc students and it is aimed at providing the first bases on the computational framework known as the lattice Boltzmann Method.
The course is practically oriented to the development of computational codes useful to solve easy engineering problems. A set of video-lessons will be given to students together with the slides used during the course.
During the course all the main pros and cons of the proposed method will be highlighted with mainly referring to 2-Dimensional applications. Different aspects of the Computational Fluid Dynamics will be analysed with referring to the chosen framework with emphasizing some comparisons with the traditional solvers.
The course structure is the one listed below:
The Boltzmann Equation
Equilibrium Distribution Function
Isothermal Incompressible Fluid Flows
Flow Over Obstacles
Non-Isothermal Incompressible Fluid Flows
From Physical World to LBM and Vice-versa
Theoretical lessons 4h of videos .
All the lessons will be given in English.
