Abstract

This article discusses a novel phenomenological approach for suppressing the coalescence in the Gunstensen multi-component lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). The suppression of coalescence is achieved by perturbing the terminal nodes of the ambient fluid's thin layer trapped between the approaching droplets. This additional perturbation creates a local high pressure fluid layer which eventually leads to suppressing the coalescence of the neighboring droplets while maintaining a suitable qualitative force balance representative of the physical intermolecular forces which act between them.
