The first test case is the CERFACS CO-VO, already performed on many codes.
An isentropic vortex is simply moving to the east of a periodic square grid. With time. The flow is supposed inviscid Euler Equations.
|Convection speed||Uc = 170m/s (Mach 0.5)|
|Domain||-0.05, 0.05 m|

Secondary test: unaligned convection
In LBM, the streaming operator is aligned with the grid. Therefore a vortex convection from west to east is a very good situation: only one direction is really working.
The secondary test is simply a convection with an angle, exactly atan (1/10) / pi180. = 5,71059314 degree*.
Therefore, after 10 revolution, the vortex should still be in the center.
The only difference is a small velocity component to the Y direction (south to north).
|Convection speed x||Uc = 170m/s (Mach 0.5)|
|Convection speed y||Vc = 17m/s|
