Lagrangian method

Lagrangian method

[lə′grän·jē·ən ‚meth·əd]
(fluid mechanics)
A method of studying fluid motion and the mechanics of deformable bodies in which one considers volume elements which are carried along with the fluid or body, and across whose boundaries material does not flow; in contrast to Euler method. Also known as Lagrangian description.

In the particle method, which is a complete Lagrangian method free from a computational grid, interface-neighboring particles are given interfacial boundary condition.
The multiscale approach consists of: 1) fully resolved simulations to obtain closures for translational and rotational gas drag tensors in crowded environments and near external and internal walls, 2) Discrete Particle Model simulations to validate the drag closures with matching experiments and to obtain statistics of angular and linear velocity changes due to inter-particle collisions between groups of particles, 3) a novel Lagrangian method based on stochastic multi-particle collisions.
Several rapid numerical algorithms can solve the numerical difficulties, which are, for example, alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) [26], augmented Lagrangian method (ALM) [27], splitting Bregman algorithm (SBA) [28], splitting Barzilai-Borwein (SBB) [24], and Bregman operator splitting (BOS) [29].
