Item description for Lattice Boltzmann Modeling: An Introduction for Geoscientists and Engineers by Michael C. Sukop...

Lattice Boltzmann models have a remarkable ability to simulate single- and multi-phase fluids and transport processes within them. A rich variety of behaviors, including higher Reynolds numbers flows, phase separation, evaporation, condensation, cavitation, buoyancy, and interactions with surfaces can readily be simulated. This book provides a basic introduction that emphasizes intuition and simplistic conceptualization of processes. It avoids the more difficult mathematics that underlies LB models. The model is viewed from a particle perspective where collisions, streaming, and particle-particle/particle-surface interactions constitute the entire conceptual framework. Beginners and those with more interest in model application than detailed mathematical foundations will find this a powerful "quick start" guide. Example simulations, exercises, and computer codes are included. Working code is provided on the Internet.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lattice Boltzmann Modeling: An Introduction for Geoscientists and Engineers?

A great overview of lattice the Boltzmann method  Aug 5, 2008
This is the second book entirely dedicated to lattice Boltzmann, which is a recent numerical method for solving the Navier-Stokes equations for fluid flow (generally) and related configurations/issues (specifically and most recently).

It can be regarded as the little brother of Succi's book The Lattice Boltzmann Equation for Fluid Dynamics and Beyond (Numerical Mathematics and Scientific Computation), as it is very similar, about half the length and came out 5 years later. It therefore represents a good complementary text to Succi's.

The authors follow roughly the same line of thought as Succi's, but differ in two major ways: 1) their theoretical discussions are not as pronounced but 2) they present a much larger number of applications and capabilities by lattice Boltzmann, on engineering issues.

This is an important and necessary book for any LB practitioner in search of ideas or anyone interested in finding out more about lattice Boltzmann.
Great for Beginners  Jan 24, 2008
This book gives a fairly detailed introduction into the 2D LB method. It includes helpful chunks of C/C++ that can be used to help write your own code. I would recommend this text to students that are having a hard time understanding the method based on the journal article literature available.

There is not a lot to learn for the expert in this field.
