Re: Flow and heat transfer

Hello Alan,

I am currently working on the thermal LBM in OpenLB and this part of the code is under heavy development at the moment. We hope to publish a revised version of the Advection-Diffusion-Equiation implementation till the end of the year.

However, you can set a constant temperature boundary by the function .addTemperatureBoundary() in AdvectionDiffusionBoundarys. Have a look at the example RayleighBenard2d or 3d, which are simulations of the rayleigh benard convection between a hot plate at the bottom and a cold plate on top (

Best regards,

Dear Max,

Thank you for your reply.

I am studying the examples RayleighBenard2d and 3d. I would like to know if it is possible to combine the example cylinder2d and forced convection. The purpose is to study the flow and heat transfer past heated cylinder. Because there is no analysis of heat transfer in the example cylinder2d.

Thank you very much.

Best regards,
