difference between interface compression and interface reconstruction

In CFX, the free surface model with surface tensio force used interface compression. How is this different from interface reconstruction like PLIC algorithm. Can know the pros and cons of both.
What software uses interface reconstruction and compression.

interface drag in homogeneous free surface model

why is interface drag not modelled in homogeneous free surface model.

CFX uses a compressive scheme for the volume fraction. It does not have a reconstruct scheme like Fluent does.

There is no interface drag in homogenous flow - both phases by definition are moving with no relative slip because they are homogeneous! That is why there is no interface drag model.

compresive scheme

Can you please explain me how compressive scheme for volume fraction works in CFX. Are there any related equations.

I am not sure if it is in the documentation. If you cnanot find it then ask ANSYS support. I think the ANSYS CFX multiphase training course also covers it.

Ok, I got the details of the model. Thanks.

So far as I know uses ANSYS the CICSAM method for reconstructing the free surface. but I'm not 100 percent safe

No, this is not correct. ANSYS CFX uses the compressive scheme (as mentioned previously in this thread).

ANSYS Fluent has CICSAM as an available option, you might be confused with that.

Oh sorry for my mistake. I should read before i post something.
