Abstract: I will present a free energy lattice Boltzmann approach to simulate multicomponent fluid flows. Focusing on ternary fluid systems, I will discuss models where the density is the same for all fluids [1], and where high density ratios between the liquid and gas components can be achieved [2]. I will then discuss several applications. First, I will discuss the dynamics of drops moving across liquid infused surfaces [3,4]. These are liquid repellent surfaces made by infusing a lubricant into porous or rough solid surfaces. Second, I will present collision dynamics between two immiscible drops [2]. We are able to capture bouncing, adhesive and insertive regimes, in agreement with experimental observations. Third, I will show our numerical study on generating emulsion droplets using a microfluidic channel [5]. I will demonstrate the rich morphologies that can be achieved by varying the fluid surface tensions and flow rates.
