Abstract

The Plateau-Rayleigh instability causes the fragmentation of a liquid ligament into smaller droplets. In this study a numerical study of this phenomenon based on a single relaxation time (SRT) pseudo-potential lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) is proposed. If systematically analysed, this test case allows to design appropriate parameters sets to deal with engineering applications involving the hydrodynamics of a jet. Grid convergence simulations are performed in the limit where the interface thickness is asymptotically smaller than the characteristic size of the ligament. These simulations show a neat asymptotic behaviour, possibly related to the convergence of LBM diffuse-interface physics to sharp interface hydrodynamics.
