A benchmark for surface-tension-driven incompressible two-phase flows

A set of simulation benchmarks is proposed and used to directly compare VoF methods available in OpenFOAM, Basilisk, and Ansys Fluent, using Jupyter notebooks to document and process the benchmark results, making a direct comparison of the results with other two-phase simulation methods very straightforward.



Numerical Models of Surface Tension

Numerical models of surface tension play an increasingly important role in our capacity to understand and predict a wide range of multiphase flow problems. The accuracy and robustness of these models

A semi‐implicit finite volume implementation of the CSF method for treating surface tension in interfacial flows

We present an implementation of Hysing's (Int. J. Numer. Meth. Fluids 2006; 51:659–672) semi‐implicit method for treating surface tension, for finite volume models of interfacial flows. Using this

A new implicit surface tension implementation for interfacial flows

A new implementation of surface tension effects in interfacial flow codes is proposed which is both fully implicit in space, that is the interface never has to be reconstructed, and also

The key idea is the treatment of the curvature terms by a variational formulation and in the context of a discontinuous in time space–time element discretization stability in (weak) energy norms can be proved.
