Reply To: Lubrication correction


Dear Nimmi,

I’m not too familiar with the simulation of thin fluid layers, but it probably depends on the case you are trying to simulate. In this paper (10.1016/j.camwa.2007.08.013) the flow over a curved surface in lubrication is investigated with basic LBM regarding the velocity profile.
If you are asking whether it is feasible to resolve a thin fluid layer it depends on the size of your domain and your computational power at hand.

Best regards
