Boiling in Palabos?

I want to be able to utilize Palabos and the Shan-Chen SCMP model to simulate boiling phenomenon, specifically bubble generation, growth, departure, and dynamics. Has anyone done some of this? Is it possible? What is the best example to start from? I am trying to figure out what is possible in this regard for some thesis work. Any assistance/information would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to just start with a simple heat flux model to create a single bubble… any tips?

Thanks, Dan

Hi Dan,

There is a paper by Hudong Chen and Rayong Zhang PHYSICAL REVIEW E 67, 066711 2003
Lattice Boltzmann method for simulations of liquid-vapor thermal flows

It uses a bit another model, but could be useful for you.

Hopefully it will help,
