Ask Me Anything: Porous media visualisation and LBPM

If you are working on Digital Rock Physics and interested in fluid flow behaviour in Porous Media, this AMA is for you. 

Please join us to discuss Lattice Boltzmann Method for Porous Media (LBPM) and the opportunities for Pawsey researchers. 

LBPM is one of the most complete derivatives of the Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) focusing on porous media providing computational as well as visualisation modules at a micro-scale. LBM is a well-known simulation tool in CFD, producing highly reliable results.  


  • focuses on porous media at microscale 
  • is accurate  
  • is scalable 
  • has features integrated with upscaling tools/techniques in high demand in the oil and gas industry 
  • is capable of running simulation in CSG/CBM as extremely heterogeneous unconventional reservoirs rocks
  • is free and open-source 

 Is LBPM of interest to the research community working at scale? Join the discussion at this AMA, and send your questions in advance via the registration form.
