Abstract

A parallel Volume-of-Fluid code has been developed to simulate interfacial flows with and without surface tension. The formulation follows a hybrid approach that uses a tangent transformation to capture the advected interface while surface tension effects are modelled by the Continuum Surface Force method. Numerical results are presented for several test problems and show good agreement with experimental data and theory.
