On the simulation of multicomponent and multiphase compressible flows

  title={On the simulation of multicomponent and multiphase compressible flows},
  author={R{\'e}mi Abgrall and Paola Bacigaluppi and Barbara Re},
The following paper presents two simulation strategies for compressible two-phase or multicomponent flows. One is a full non-equilibrium model in which the pressure and velocity are driven towards the equilibrium at interfaces by numerical relaxation processes, the second is a four-equation model that assumes stiff mechanical and thermal equilibrium between phases or components. In both approaches, the thermodynamic behaviour of each fluid is modelled independently according to the stiffened…

Hyperbolic balance laws: residual distribution, local and global fluxes

This review paper describes a class of scheme named "residual distribution schemes" or "fluctuation splitting schemes", a generalization of Roe’s numerical flux in fluctuation form, ranging from the compressible Euler equations to the Shallow Water equations.

A staggered-projection Godunov-type method for the Baer-Nunziato two-phase model



A Multiphase Godunov Method for Compressible Multifluid and Multiphase Flows

A new model and a solution method for two-phase compressible flows is proposed that provides reliable results, is able to compute strong shock waves, and deals with complex equations of state.

Non-equilibrium Model for Weakly Compressible Multi-component Flows: the Hyperbolic Operator

A novel pressure-based method for weakly compressible multiphase flows, based on a non-equilibrium Baer and Nunziato-type model with absence of oscillations and the agreement with analytical or published solutions is demonstrated in simplified test cases, confirming the validity of the proposed approach.

Design of a Second-Order Fully Explicit Residual Distribution Scheme for Compressible Multiphase Flows

The novelty of this work is the capability of the presented approximation to provide mesh convergence and to be easily extended to 2D and unstructured meshes.

Diffuse-Interface Capturing Methods for Compressible Two-Phase Flows

Simulation of compressible flows became a routine activity with the appearance of shock-/contact-capturing methods. These methods can determine all waves, particularly discontinuous ones. However,

Two-phase modeling of deflagration-to-detonation transition in granular materials: Reduced equations

Of the two-phase mixture models used to study deflagration-to-detonation transition in granular explosives, the Baer–Nunziato model is the most highly developed. It allows for unequal phase

How to Prevent Pressure Oscillations in Multicomponent Flow Calculations

A new numerical scheme for computing multicomponent flows is presented. It is able to handle strong shocks, is pressure oscillation free through the contact discontinuities, and guarantees the

A Mach‐uniform unstructured staggered grid method

A novel Mach‐uniform method to compute flows using unstructured staggered grids is discussed. The Mach‐uniform method is a generalization of the pressure‐correction approach for incompressible flows,
