Project description

Traditionally, the motion of fluids has been described by solving differential equations (e.g. the Navier-Stokes equation). However, modern computer technology enables a very different approach, where the fluid is modeled by fluid "particles" moving on a spatial lattice. The computer then moves and collides these particles according to assumed rules. This approach is known as "cellular automaton lattice gases". Honours projects are available to implement such lattice gases using the Lattice Boltzmann Method, in order to model various phenomena (like turbulence) that are difficult to model with differential equations.

Note: You need to register interest in projects from different supervisors (not a number of projects with the one supervisor).
You must also contact each supervisor directly to discuss both the project details and your suitability to undertake the project.
