A new release of OpenLB is out. The most important new feature is OpenLB multiphysics, a structure by which you may couple several lattices together. You will find example programs which show how to implement multi-component and thermal fluids, in 2D or 3D, and in serial or parallel.
Furthermore, MPI parallelization is now more efficient. Check out the benchmark page to see how an efficiency of 3.5 Giga site updates per second was reached in a 3D benchmark on a parallel machine with 4069 processors.
The user guide has been updated and includes a section on data I/O, using either the binary Base64 format, or (new) an ASCII format.
Since I am still quite new to LB method, I am wondering about conjugate heat transfer problem.
Thermal capability was added to the latest release version. The examples given only solve for fluid domain. What if there is also solid domain in the case, that is, is it possible to solve a conjugate heat transfer problem which involves solids (heat conduction) and fluids (natural convection and/or force convection)?
