Mesoscopic lattice modeling of electrokinetic phenomena

The development of models for electrolytes is challenging due to the long-range nature of electric interactions. We propose a novel implementation of a lattice Boltzmann model that solves a number of limitations and inconsistencies in previously proposed variants and discuss the range of parameters the model can cover. We show how the relevant electrohydrodynamic couplings are recovered analyzing a particular electrokinetic phenomena. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
