An anti-diffusive volume of fluid method for interfacial fluid flows

by Y. G. Chen, W. G. Price, P. Temarel
International Journal for Numerical Methods in Fluids ()


A volume of fluid (VOF) method is developed combining a first order limited downwind scheme with higher order accurate schemes. The method is characterized by retaining a sharp fluid interface and a reduction of numerical diffusion near the interface but avoids complicated geometrical reconstruction as occurs in most volume tracing algorithms. To demonstrate the ac-curacy and robustness of the method, a selection of numerical experiments are presented involv-ing a pure advection problem, a water wave impact caused by a dam breaking and liquid sloshing in a partially filled tank.
