Mailinglist LB-Methods


The idea of this mailing list

Lattice Boltzmann methods are a recent numerical method for the simulation of fluid flow and related phenomena. During the last few years, this new method evolved into an interesting alternative to conventional CFD methods, especially in the case of complex flows.

This mailing list was inatially installed as the result of the DFG and KONWIHR-Workshop LBM2001. In the meantime there are about 250 people subscribed to the list. The basic idea of this mailing list is to increase the information exchange and discussion between different groups and individuals working with lattice Boltzmann methods.
