The motion of deformable drops in pipes and channels is studied using a level set approach in order to capture the interface of two fluids. The interface is described as the zero level set of a smooth function, which is defined to be the signed normal distance from the interface. In order to solve the Navier-Stokes equations, a second-order projection method is used. The dimensionless parameters of the problem are the relative size of the drop to the size of the pipe or channel cross-section… CONTINUE READING
