A Coupled Level Set-Moment of Fluid Method for Incompressible Two-Phase Flows
The nonlinear terms in the momentum equations are solved using the sharp interface approach recently developed by Raessi and Pitsch (2009). We have modified the algorithm of Raessi and Pitsch from a staggered grid method to a collocated grid method and we combine their treatment for the nonlinear terms with the variable density, collocated, pressure projection algorithm developed by Kwatra et al (2009). A collocated grid method makes it convenient for using block structured adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) grids. Many 2D and 3D numerical simulations of bubbles, jets, drops, and waves on a block structured adaptive grid are presented in order to demonstrate the capabilities of our new method.
