We present a 2D- and 3D-lattice Boltzmann model for the treatment of free surface flows including gas diffusion. Interface advection and related boundary conditions are based on the idea of the lattice Boltzmann equation. The fluid dynamic boundary conditions are approximated by using the mass and momentum fluxes across the interface, which do not require explicit calculation of gradients. A similar procedure is applied to fulfill the diffusion boundary condition. Simple verification tests demonstrate the correctness of the algorithms. 2D- and 3D-foam evolution examples demonstrate the potential of the method. © 2005 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
