## Re: [ESPResSo-users] Simulation of fluid using LB-method

Hello Markus,

for your simulation not containing particles, the skin is irrelevant. Espresso originally being an MD code insists on one. We shifted the LB grid by half an agrid, so that one can use "composite" objects using virtual sites. With an unshifted grid you could have a situation in which the virtual sites of an object are located in an LB cell which is treated by another MPI rank (using the CPU LB with cores), which wouldn't work properly.

Greetings,
Georg

Absolutely. Whatever is written in Georgs thesis.

This means if you lbboundary is located at z=1, it means there is a layer of wall nodes at x=*, y=*, z=0.5. For not too high viscosities (should be in the He formula as well) no measurable slip should appear and the hydrodynamic boundary should be located mid-grid, thus at z=1.
