Based on the moment space, the lattice Boltzmann method is applied to simulate the evolution of nanofluid droplet on a heated substrate. The results show that the evolution of nanofluid droplet experiences pinning, depinning stage and in the end ring stain is obviously found because of the nanoparticles’ strong pinning. The simulation results are compared with the experimental investigations of reference, and good agreements are obtained.
