Numerical simulation of internal gravity waves using a lattice gas model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Internal waves are modelled in two different circumstances: in a continuously stratified fluid and at the interface between two immiscible fluids. This is done using the lattice gas approach. The standard single phase model and an immiscible two-phase model are both modified to incorporate gravitational interactions. Standing internal waves are set up in both models and are seen to oscillate under the action of the gravitational interaction. The results obtained suggest that the lattice gas approach can be a useful tool in the modelling of such phenomena.
