A three-dimensional enthalpic lattice Boltzmann formulation for convection–diffusion heat transfer problems in heterogeneous media

Abstract : In this paper, an enthalpic lattice Boltzmann method formulation for 3D unsteady convection-diffusion heat transfer problems is used to overcome discontinuity issues in heterogeneous media. The new formulation is based on the appearance of a source term added to the collision step. The major achievement of the proposed enthalpic LB formulation is avoiding any interface treatments or geometry considerations even when dealing with complex geometries. The performance of the present method is tested for several three-dimensional convection-diffusion problems. Comparisons are made with the control volume method, and numerical results show excellent agreements.
