Abstract

The lattice Boltzmann model (LBM) is a relatively new development in computational fluid dynamics. Here we review the technique with particular emphasis on its application to biological systems. Further, we consider its application to arterial flows and discuss its potential for simulating flow on length-scales where traditional numerical approaches can be troublesome. Finally we present results from a preliminary investigation which demonstrate the suitability of the LBM.
