Heres another theory question :)

Following Alrichs & Dunweg 1999 and Usta 2005, I have found the proper
offset for friction in Lattice Boltzmann. The one thing I do not
understand about the offset is how the Oseen Tensor becomes discretized to

u_av = F / (g eta dx)

From the Oseen tensor it follows that u scales with F, \eta^{-1} and r^{-1}, so at a distance dx u~F/(/eta dx). Then g is just a unitless factor that depends on how u is averaged, for example, averaging over a spherical surface gives g=6\pi. For the LB lattice, g depends on the interpolation stencil and the exact location of the (singular) force relative to the lattice sites. In practice, one uses a value of g obtained from averaging over various locations within an elementary lattice cell. This is described in more detail in the review by Duenweg/Ladd in Adv. Poly. Sci. http://arxiv.org/abs/0803.2826.

Best,
Ulf
