Welcome to the Lattice Boltzmann Research Group

The Lattice Boltzmann Research Group (LBRG) is an interdisciplinary research group aiming at taking advantage of novel mathematical modelling strategies and numerical methods to enable large-scale simulations as well as optimal control of fluid flows for applications in the field of process engineering. The LBRG aims at a better fundamental understanding of suspensions in general as well as for the improvement of mechanical processes and medical treatments. In particular the LBRG designs and uses models, algorithms and open source simulation tools as OpenLB always taking advantage of modern high performance computers for the simulation of e.g.

  • Particulate fluid flows
  • Thermal flows
  • Turbulent flows
  • Material transport and chemical reactive flows
  • Light transport
  • Fluid-structure interaction
  • Flows in porous media and complex geometries

The LBRG’s teaching and education concept is project- and research-oriented, offering for example basic programming courses, lectures on parallel computing, software tutorials and advanced seminars on particular fluid flow simulations as well as optimal control theory.
