This paper studies the effect which advection has upon the morphology of structures precipitating in the presence of fluid flow. A phase field model is used to track the solid liquid interface of precipitating structures whilst the Lattice-Boltzmann model simulates the Navier-Stokes equations. The total system consists of a coupling of these two models. Non laminar Reynolds Numbers are also achieved by implimenting an eddy viscosity subgrid model which allows us to study the effects of turbulent flow in the system.
