pylbm is an all-in-one package for numerical simulations using Lattice Boltzmann solvers.
pylbm is licensed under the BSD license, enabling reuse with few restrictions.
pylbm can be a simple way to make numerical simulations by using the Lattice Boltzmann method.
To install pylbm, you have several ways. You can install it using conda
conda install pylbm -c pylbm -c conda-forge
or using the last version on Pypi
pip install pylbm
You can also clone the project
git clone https://github.com/pylbm/pylbm
and then use the command
python setup.py install
or if you don’t have root privileges
python setup.py install --user
Once the package is installed you just have to understand how build a dictionary that will be understood by pylbm to perform the simulation. The dictionary should contain all the needed informations as
To understand how to use pylbm, you have a lot of Python notebooks in the tutorial.
