- Published 2005

A new implementation of surface tension effects in interfacial flow codes is proposed which is both fully implicit in space and semi-implicit in time. The main idea is to combine two previously separate techniques to yield a new expression for the capillary forces. The first is the continuum surface force (CSF) method, which is used to regularize the discontinuous surface tension force term. The regularization can be elegantly implemented with the use of distance functions which makes the level… CONTINUE READING
