Reply To: Unit conversion


Dear Participant,

please have a look at the book “The Lattice Boltzmann Method” by Krüger et al. [] which dedicates an entire Chapter to this task.

More information about the unitConverter in OpenLB can be found in the User Guide (, see Section 2.4 “Lesson 4: UnitConverter – Lattice and Physical Units”).

Please note that akin introductory topics are taught at our yearly Spring school (, which offers many benefits for learning LBM and OpenLB.
