Description/Abstract

The Lattice Boltzmann Equation (LBE) method is described for simulating micro- and
meso-scale phenomena. The method is employed to study multiphase and multicomponent flows in
microchannels. Applications to a micromixer and a CO2 bubbly flow demonstrate its capability in
simulating multiphysics phenomena that are challenging for conventional Navier-Stokes based tech-
niques.
