Re: [Question #670317]: Modelling and solving DEM-LBM problems


Question #670317 on Yade changed:

    Status: Open => Answered

Bruno Chareyre proposed the following answer:
1) the LBM implemented in Yade (if that's what you have in mind) was a 2D model, it is not applicable in 3D.
I would say that, at best, this 2D LBM could inspire a bit someone who would be ready to re-implement in 3D but building on the top of it is not a good idea since it is old, it relies on matlab for some aspects, it is not well integrated.

2) I would say if you want a 3D multiphase LBM there is no point
starting from the current 2D one-phase code. You better start from
scratch or you use a 3rd party software like Palabos (that's what we are
doing here).
