Navier-Stokes vs lattice Boltzmann: will it change the landscape of CFD?

navier-stokes-boltzmann_350-350

For most people,  CFD is about continuity and Navier-Stokes equations.  But this is not always true.One of the alternatives for CFD simulation is lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE), where fluid is treated as fictitious mesoscopic  particles (not molecules). If you need something to make you sleepy, please read the short (and concise, and free) book:  A ...
