    Dear all,

    I noticed the latest release has allowed reactive transport simulations. I am wondering if OpenLB has the capacity to simulate mineral precipitation and dissolution at the liquid-solid interfaces. I am thinking about the phase change model used for melting or the homogenized model for moving boundaries. I would appreciate it if you could provide some of your suggestions. Thank you!



    Dear Antonio.

    I believe that the phase change model would be interesting for your application. In this approach, melting is modeled by an energy conservation equation, which means that the phase change process is triggered by temperature gradients. In your case, perhaps the model would have to be modified to allow the formation of a solid phase from concentration gradients.

    I will talk to my colleagues to get more insights. Afterwards, I will come back here to give a more detailed suggestion.
