LBSim Guide

This document was written with the objective to help you to use the LBSim software, a program developed for fluid dynamics simulations using the Lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). For detailed information about the LBM, please read the appropriate resources, like scientific papers and reference books. This document has a practical approach, showing how to use the LBSim software, without the concern of the technical details of the method.

The LBSim program has been developed since 2010, incorporating a series of features in the meantime. The rest of this text is structured in this manner: the next chapter talks about the general concepts of the software, and the next three chapters comment issues about the pre-processing, simulation and post-processing stages. The last chapter talks about some other topics about the program.
