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

By Y.G. Chen, W.G. Price and P. Temarel


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 accuracy and robustness of the method, a selection of numerical experiments are presented involving a pure advection problem, a water wave impact caused by a dam breaking and liquid sloshing in a partially filled tank
