High-order finite-element framework for the efficient simulation of multifluid flows

Abstract : We present in this paper a comprehensive framework for the simulation of multifluid flows based on the implicit level-set representation of interfaces and on an efficient solving strategy of the Navier-Stokes equations. The mathematical framework relies on a modular coupling approach between the level-set advection and the fluid equations. The space discretization is performed with possibly high-order stable finite elements while the time discretization features implicit Backward Differentation Formulae of arbitrary order. This framework has been implemented within the Feel++ library, and features seamless distributed parallelism with fast assembly procedures for the algebraic systems and efficient preconditioning strategies for their resolution. We also present simulation results for a three-dimensional multifluid benchmark, and highlight the importance of using high-order finite elements for the level-set discretization for problems involving the geometry of the interfaces, such as the curvature or its derivatives.
