Abstract

Multiphase flow of fluids can be found everywhere either in natural environment phenomenon or in the technology evolution. Study of multiphase flow could contribute a better understanding on multiphase behaviour. The knowledge of multiphase flow behaviour is important in the development of equipment which directly related to multiphase problem. Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) is relatively new method and has a good potential to compete with traditional CFD methods. Recently it has been proved to be a promising tool to simulate the viscous flow (Chen and Doolen, 1998). LBM based on derivation of kinetic theory which working in mesoscopic level instead of macroscopic discretisation by traditional method. Instead of easy in incorporating with microscopic physics, it is also require shorter computational time compare to the current method.
