Lattice Boltzmann models for non-Newtonian flows

Phillips, Timothy Nigel and Roberts, Gareth Wyn 2011. Lattice Boltzmann models for non-Newtonian flows. IMA Journal of Applied Mathematics 76 (5) , pp. 790-816. 10.1093/imamat/hxr003

The lattice Boltzmann method has been established as an efficient technique for solving a wide range of complex problems in fluid dynamics including multiphase flows. In this paper, the extension of the technique to the simulation of non-Newtonian fluids is described. Two classes of non-Newtonian fluids are considered: inelastic fluids characterized by a variable viscosity and viscoelastic fluids characterized by fluid elasticity. A comprehensive review is given of developments in this area and sample numerical results are presented in the case of inelastic fluids.
