Large eddy simulation (LES) is performed on a jet issued normally into a cross-flow using lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) and multiple graphic processing units (multi-GPUs) to study the flow characteristics of jets in cross-flow (JICF). The simulation with 8 1.50´10 grids is fulfilled with 6 K20M GPUs. With large-scaled simulation, the secondary and tertiary vortices are captured. The features of the secondary vortices and the tertiary vortices reveal that they have a great impact on the mixing between jet flow and cross-flow. The qualitative and quantitative results also indicate that the evolution mechanism of vortices is not constant, but varies with different situations. The hairpin vortex under attached jet regime originates from the boundary layer vortex of cross-flow. While, the origin of hairpin vortex in detached jet is the jet shear-layer vortex. The mean velocities imply the good ability of LBM to simulate JICF and the large loss of jet momentum in detached jet caused by the strong penetration. Besides, in our computation, a high computational performance of 1083.5 MLUPS is achieved.
