Abstract

Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) is a novel numerical method for flows simulations. Compared with classic methods of Finite Difference Method, Finite Volume Method and Finite Element Method, LBM has numerous advantages, including inherent parallelization and simplicity of boundary condition treatment. The LBM usually has a constraint of incompressible fluid (Mach number less than 0.4). A variant of the LBM is studied and used to deal with compressible fluid with Mach number up to 0.9 in this paper. Special emphasis is placed on mesh generation of 3-D complete geometry in Cartesian coordinate system. Numerical experiments are fulfilled in 2-D and 3-D compressible flows. Performance evaluation of the algorithm demonstrates high parallel efficiency and prefect scalability. Numerical results indicate that the LBM is successful with the simulation of compressible fluid.
