After reading this chapter, you will understand how the lattice Boltzmann equation can be adapted from flow problems to advection-diffusion problems with only small changes. These problems include thermal flows, and you will know how to simulate these as two interlinked lattice Boltzmann simulations, one for the flow and one for the thermal advection-diffusion. You will understand how advection-diffusion problems require different boundary conditions from flow problems, and how these boundary conditions may be implemented.
