I am trying to implement the 2D Poiseuille flow with the Lattice Boltzmann method, and I am using "on-grid bounce back" boundary conditions.

I have implemented it, but my velocity-profile is strange. There is a finite velocity at the boundary, but I was under the impression that the whole point of the bounce-back BC was to ensure no-slip. My velocity profile looks like this.

Does this behavior at the boundary imply an error in my implementation?

I'd be happy to post my code, if anyone is interested in taking a look.

Thanks in advance,

It's been quite a while since I implemented LBM for channel flow.
But it should be correct, that you get a finite velocity at the walls.
The magnitude of this velocity depends on your lattice size. If you decrease the mesh size, the velocity at the walls should tend to zero.
