Volume-of-Fluid Interface Tracking with Smoothed Surface Stress Methods for Three-Dimensional Flows

  title={Volume-of-Fluid Interface Tracking with Smoothed Surface Stress Methods for Three-Dimensional Flows},
  author={Denis Gueyffier and Jie Li and Ali Nadim and Ruben Scardovelli and St{\'e}phane Zaleski},
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… CONTINUE READING
