Within this project, we perform lattice Boltzmann simulations of spinodal decomposition and structuring effects in binary immiscible and ternary amphiphilic fluid mixtures under shear. We use a highly scalable parallel Fortran 90 code for the implementation of the lattice Boltzmann method. We demonstrate that the domain growth mechanisms in ternary amphiphilic fluid mixtures strongly depend on the amphiphile concentration. For systems under constant and oscillatory shear we analyze domain growth rates in directions parallel and perpendicular to the applied shear and find that these systems undergo structural transitions with tubular and lamellar structures appearing.
