A new Lattice Boltzmann collision model for large eddy simulation (LES) of weakly compressible flows is proposed. This model, referred to as the Hybrid Recursive Regularised Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook (HRR-BGK) model, is based on a modification of previously existing regularised collision models defined with the BGK Lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) framework. By hybridising the computation of the velocity gradient with an adequate Finite Difference scheme when reconstructing the non-equilibrium parts

A dynamic version of the HRR-BGK is also proposed, in which the control parameter is tuned at each grid point and each time step in order to recover an arbitrarily fixed total dissipation. This new collision model is assessed for both explicit and implicit LES considering the flow around a circular cylinder at Re = 3900. The dynamic HRR-BGK is observed to yield very accurate results when equipped with Vreman's subgrid model to compute the target dissipation.
