Argonne researcher Misun Min recognized for top paper

April 1, 2011

A paper by Argonne assistant computer scientist Misun Min and her collaborator Taehun Lee at the City College of City University of New York has been recognized as one of the "Top 25 Hottest Articles" in the Journal of Computational Physics from October to December 2010. The paper, titled "A spectral-element discontinuous Galerkin lattice Boltzmann method for nearly incompressible flow," presents a new method that involves decoupling the numerical scheme into collision and streaming steps. The new method provides increased numerical stability over traditional schemes at high Reynolds numbers (up to 9500) characteristic of turbulent flows. Understanding such flows is important in numerous computational fluid dynamics applications, including geoscience, engineering, and hydrodynamics. More ยป
