Abstract: In this paper, a recent curved non-slip wall boundary treatment for isothermal Lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE) [Z. Guo, C. Zheng and B. Shi, Phys. Fluids 14(6) (2002)] is extended to handle the thermal curved wall boundary for a. double-population thermal lattice Boltzmann equation (TLBE). The unknown distribution population at a wall node which is necessary to fulfill streaming step is decomposed into its equilibrium and non-equilibrium parts. The equilibrium part is evaluated according to Dirichlet and Neumann boundary constraints, and the non-equilibrium part is obtained using a first-order extrapolation from fluid lattices. To validate the thermal boundary condition treatment, we carry out numerical simulations of Couette flow between two circular cylinders, the natural convection in a square cavity, and the natural convection in a concentric annulus between an outer square cylinder and an inner circular cylinder. The results agree very well with analytical solution or available data in the literature. Our numerical results also demonstrate that the TLBE together with the present boundary scheme is of second-order accuracy. © World Scientific Publishing Company.
