The field of Lattice Boltzmann Method
In recent years, Lattice Boltzmann Methods (LBM) turned into an established numerical tool for computational fluid dynamic (CFD) problems and beyond. The simulation of complex multi-physical problems benefits strongly from the comprehensive mesoscopic modelling underlying LBM and establishes LBM besides traditional numerical methods.
The expected attendees are Master and PhD students as well as researchers and developers from academia and industry, who seek to learn both, theoretical and practical aspects of LBM. As simulation is an interdisciplinary discipline, the spring school addresses to engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians, physicians and others. Based on their interest in CFD, this course provides a collaborative platform for LBM for developers and researchers.
Objective of the spring school
The spring school introduces scientists and applicants from industry to the theory of LBM and trains them on practical problems. The first three days are dedicated to the theoretical fundamentals of LBM up to ongoing research on selected topics. Followed by two days ofmentored training on case studies using OpenLB, the participants gain deep inside into LBM and its applications.
This educational concept is probably unique in the LBM community and offers a comprehensive and personal guided approach to LBM. Participants also benefit from the knowledge exchange during poster session, coffee breaks and the excursion at the Mediterranean sea.
