Coupled Level set moment of fluid method for simulating multiphase flows

Abstract : A coupled level set moment of fluid (CLSMOF) method for numerical simulation of multiphase flows is presented in this paper. This numerical method of liquid/gas interface capture is a hybrid of classical moment of fluid (MOF) method and coupled level set volume of fluid (CLSVOF) method. In this CLSMOF method, MOF interface reconstruction is used only for the under-resolved liquid structures while the level set function is used for the interface reconstruction for the resolved structures. This method combines the advantages of accurate capture of under-resolved liquid strucutres from MOF method and sharp interface representation by the level set function. The results presented in this paper demonstrates the ability and accuracy of the CLSMOF method to be as high as that of the MOF method while incurring relatively less computational expense. Finally, the application of CLSMOF method to simulation of turbulent diesel jet yeilded a very satisfactory volume conservation.
