Abstract

This article presents a single-fluid formulation for modeling multiphase flows using the level-set method. The formulation is generic in the sense that additional physics involving heat and mass transfer can be incorporated easily. Numerical solutions of the governing equations are performed under the framework of the finite volume method. Three examples are presented to showcase the present approach. The present approach can readily be extended to three-dimensions.
