Abstract

Numerical simulations of two-dimensional capillary filling using the pseudo-potential lattice Boltzmann model for multiphase fluids are presented. It is shown that whenever the density of the light-phase exceeds about ten percent of the dense phase, the front motion proceeds through a combined effect of capillary advection and condensation.
