In this paper we present an implementation for the QPACE supercomputer of a Lattice Boltzmann model of a fluid-dynamics flow in 2 dimensions. QPACE is a massively parallel application-driven system powered by the Cell processor. We review the structure of the model, describe in details its implementation on QPACE and finally present performance data and preliminary physics results. Keywords: Fluid-dynamics, Lattice Boltzmann Model, CBE processor, QPACE supercomputer.
