Accounting for sorption processes in fluid dynamics

What is it about?

Tracers in a fluid adsorb and desorb to interfaces. We show how to take these into account in the lattice Boltzmann scheme using the moment propagation method.

Why is it important?

It is the first time adsorption and desorption processes are taken into account in the Lattice Botlzmann scheme.
