Lattice Boltzmann equation with Bhatnagar–Gross–Krook (BGK) model is applied to simulate unsteady laminar flow around a confined square obstacle, in order to study the vortex shedding and their interaction in the flow on the mass transfer in the parietal zone of a channel. The model was tested by comparing to an experimental study via standard particle image velocimetry (PIV). A post-processing was used to well extract instantaneous vortices contained in the flow downstream obstacles. A sensor with zero concentration on the surface is placed on the channel wall to study the effect of wake instabilities on the parietal mass transfer.
