Direct simulations of the interaction of a large number of deformable droplets are necessary for more accurate predictions of rheological properties and the microstructure of liquid-liquid systems. In the present study, a mathematical model of a three-dimensional flow of a mixture of two Newtonian liquids of a droplet structure in an unbounded domain at low Reynolds numbers is considered. An efficient computational method for simulation of the dynamics of a large number of deformable drops is…
