How to deal with pseudo-compressibility of lattice Boltzmann method when you are calculating mass flux?

In lattice Boltzmann method, we have a concept, which is called pseudo-compressibility and it is defined based on the fact that LBM simulates incompressible flows by having small Mach number to ensure ...

Can we simulate incompressible flows using the (slight) density changes to give pressure?

A common approach says an incompressible flow has velocity divergence of 0; use this to solve for pressure in the Navier Stokes momentum equation. Or, using the Helmholtz Decomposition "project" the ...
