Abstract

Direct numerical simulation of multiphase flows represents a challenging task, since the interfacial layer separating the bulk phases experiences complex topological changes. In our work, we consider the two-phase flow of a singlecomponent, viscous, Newtonian fluid undergoing isothermal phase transitions and/or phase boundary deformations and we propose a method for stable numerical simulation of the flow dynamics based on a single system of governing equations for the whole flow domain.
