Motivated by the need for three-dimensional methods for interface calculations that can deal with topology changes, we describe a numerical scheme, built from a volume-of-fluid interface tracking technique that uses a piecewise-linear interface calculation in each cell. Momentum balance is computed using explicit finite volume/finite differences on a regular cubic grid. Surface tension is implemented by the continuous surface stress or continuous surface force method. Examples and verifications…

Spline Volume Tracking for Interfacial Flows

The model is based on an implicit in time discretization of Navier-Stokes equations on unstructured grids, using staggered finite volumes, and a cubic spline interface interpolant which preserves the volume fraction distribution is introduced.
