Abstract

A LES model was developed to simulate the motion of a large number of Lagrangian particles, or droplets, in turbulent flows with an aim to the application to a cumulus cloud. A highly efficient parallel algorithm was developed in order to calculate the motion of a large number of Lagrangian particles whose number and size keep changing with time through condensation and collision. Simulation results provide various ...
