Numerical simulation of two-phase flows with heat and mass transfer

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We present a finite element method for simulating complex free surface flow. The mathematical model and the numerical method take into account two-phase non-isothermal flow of an incompressible liquid and a gas phase, capillary forces at the interface of both fluids, Marangoni effects due to temperature variation of the interface and mass transport across the interface by evaporation/condensation. The method is applied to two examples from microgravity research, for which experimental data are available.
