We have just released a new video on our OpenLB YouTube Channel.
The OpenLBee showcase illustrates a bee at a realistic Reynolds number in its landing approach. The bee was placed in a rectangular flow domain. The flow is driven by a velocity inlet and a pressure outlet boundary condition, while for the other plane of the box a symmetry conditions is set. An LES-LBM turbulence scheme is used and a wall model is applied to deal with the boundary layer separation of the thin wings in an efficient way. For the visualization Blender was used.
