We develop a mesoscopic lattice Boltzmann model for liquid-vapor phase transition by handling the microscopic molecular interaction. The short-range molecular interaction is incorporated by recovering an equation of state for dense gases, and the long-range molecular interaction is mimicked by introducing a pairwise interaction force. Double distribution functions are employed, with the density distribution function for the mass and momentum conservation laws and an innovative total kinetic ener... »
