An enthalpy-based thermal lattice Boltzmann model is introduced for simulating a class of strongly coupled thermo-hydrodynamic problems. The novelty of the model lies in the formulation of an enthalpy density distribution function to simulate the temperature field, in place of the existing internal energy density distribution function. The proposed model has a clear advantage over the earlier internal energy density distribution function based thermal lattice Boltzmann model, in a sense that it can simulate certain classes of thermofluidic transport problems without facing mathematical difficulties in handling with additional energy source terms.
