This paper outlines the development of a two-phase flow model based on the theory of thermodynamically compatible systems of hyperbolic conservation laws. The conservative hyperbolic governing equations are numerically implemented in conjunction with the second-order MUSCL method and the GFORCE flux, while for the reduced isentropic model the first-order Godunov method is also derived. Results are presented for the water–air shock tube and water-faucet test problems.
