Abstract

An extension of the pseudopotential lattice Boltzmann method is introduced to simulate heat transfer problems involving phase transition. Using this model, evaporation through a plane interface and two-phase Poiseuille flow were simulated and the macroscopic jump conditions were utilized to evaluate the accuracy of the method. We have found that the simulation results are in very good agreement with the analytical solutions as far as we take into account the extent of the interface during the evaluation. Using the same model heterogeneous boiling was simulated taking into account the geometry of a cavity and the important features of the boiling process could be observed in the simulation results.
