Lattice Boltzmann algorithm to simulate isotropic-nematic emulsions.

Abstract:

We present lattice Boltzmann simulations of the dynamical equations of motion of a drop of isotropic fluid in a nematic liquid crystal solvent, both in the absence and in the presence of an electric field. The coupled equations we solve are the Beris-Edward equations for the dynamics of the tensor order parameter describing the nematic solvent, the Cahn-Hilliard equation for the concentration evolution, and the Navier-Stokes equations for the determination of the instantaneous velocity field....
