[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: In our surrounding environment, we may often see many various miscible liquid-liquid mixture phenomena, like pouring honey or ink into water, Coca Cola into strong wine etc., while few papers have devoted to the simulation of the phenomena. In this paper, we use a two-fluid lattice Boltzmann method (TFLBM) to simulate the underlying dynamics of miscible mixtures. By the method, a subgrid model is applied to improve its numerical stability so that the free surface of the mixture, accompanying with higher Reynolds number, can be simulated. We also apply control forces to the mixture with interesting animation created. By optimizing the memory structure and taking the advantage of dual-core or multi-core systems, we achieve real time computation for a domain in 643 cells full of fluid mixtures.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: In the fluid simulation, the fluids and their surroundings may greatly change properties such as shape and temperature simultaneously, and different surroundings would characterize different interactions, which would change the shape and motion of the fluids in different ways. On the other hand, interactions among fluid mixtures of different kinds would generate more comprehensive behavior. To investigate the interaction behavior in physically based simulation of fluids, it is of importance to build physically correct models to represent the varying interactions between fluids and the environments, as well as interactions among the mixtures. In this paper, we will make a simple review of the interactions, and focus on those most interesting to us, and model them with various physical solutions. In particular, more detail will be given on the simulation of miscible and immiscible binary mixtures. In some of the methods, it is advantageous to be taken with the graphics processing unit (GPU) to achieve real-time computation for middle-scale simulation.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Through interaction with surroundings, the fluids may change their properties such as shapes, temperature vastly, and the same would happen to the surroundings simultaneously. On the other hand, different surroundings characterize different interactions, and may change the shapes and motions of the fluids in different ways. Therefore, it is of importance in physically-based simulation of fluids to build physically correct models to represent the varying interactions between fluids and the environments. In this paper, we make a simple summation on the interactions, and in particular focus on those most interesting to us, and model them with various physical solutions. In some of the methods, advantage is taken with the graphics processing unit (GPU) to achieve real-time computation for medial-scale simulation
