Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

“The lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) is a relatively new simulation technique for complex fluid systems and has attracted interest from the research community concerned with computational fluid dynamics (CFD). … The author provides a good account of the LBM which deals with fundamentals as well as engineering applications. … A good number of references are presented in the bibliography. The book also provides computer codes in FORTRAN for flow simulation. … The book is well written and will certainly be useful for beginners in CFD.” (K. N. Shukla, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1247, 2012)

“The book introduces the basics of lattice Boltzmann methods, a numerical tool for the simulation of flows in the Navier-Stokes regime. It addresses engineers and scientists not familiar with the subject who are willing to use the tool for applications.” (Hans Babovsky, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 h)

From the Back Cover

Lattice Boltzmann Method introduces the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) for solving transport phenomena – flow, heat and mass transfer – in a systematic way. Providing explanatory computer codes throughout the book, the author guides readers through many practical examples, such as:

  • flow in isothermal and non-isothermal lid driven cavities;
  • flow over obstacles;
  • forced flow through a heated channel;
  • conjugate forced convection; and
  • natural convection.

Diffusion and advection-diffusion equations are discussed with applications and examples, and complete computer codes accompany the coverage of single and multi-relaxation-time methods. Although the codes are written in FORTRAN, they can be easily translated to other languages, such as C++. The codes can also be extended with little effort to multi-phase and multi-physics, if the reader knows the physics of the problem.

Readers with some experience of advanced mathematics and physics will find Lattice Boltzmann Method a useful and easy-to-follow text. It has been written for those who are interested in learning and applying the LBM to engineering and industrial problems and it can also serve as a textbook for advanced undergraduate or graduate students who are studying computational transport phenomena.

This is a book for beginners who are going to study LBM. Compared with other books, detail descriptions on the background theory are omitted. However, the simple explanation about LBM might be easy to understand for begginers. There are a lot of simple examples and some codes for simple toy problems. A lot of information is lacked on LBM and this book in not a seatable book as a main one on LBM. It might to be OK to have the third or fourth one.

The worst thing is that there are alot of misprints. There may be no proofreaders. Therefore, we had better not to buy the first edition.

this book is very helpful for beginners. Clear and simple approach. I advise this book if you want to get started with LBM and do not have a deep back grown in gas kinetics. in

The editor of this book should be ashamed and the publisher embarassed. I expect more from Springer books. There are several grammatical errors on every page. Putting that aside, the Fortran codes in this book are poorly formatted leading to poor readability. Hence they are of little real use. The early chapters give a good description of LBM basics. Beyond that, you will have to rely on good journal papers.

I would definitely recommend this book to beginners who do not have any knowledge of LBM. Although there are some mistakes in code but it will help you to outline your own code.
