The Palabos library is a framework for general-purpose computational fluid dynamics, with a kernel based on the lattice Boltzmann method. It is used both as a research and an engineering tool: its programming interface is straightforward and makes it possible to set up fluid flow simulations with relative ease, or, if you are knowledgeable of the lattice Boltzmann method, to extend the library with your own models.
