 June 9, 2007, 02:33 problem in Phase Field method #1 qunwuhe@hotmail.com Guest   Posts: n/a I used Phase Field method simulating a bubble movement. However, when I plot the streamlines, I found some of the streamlines across the interface, which means some fluid flows across the interface. However, I simulated the incompressible and immisible flow. Does anyone can tell me the reason and how to solve it Thanks a lot

For parasitic flow, when surface tension is weak, the effect should be negligible. I decreased the surface tension, there still is across flow.

(so why u select phase-filed, level set was trivial choice at first) anyhow, i think that false current should be smaller in phase-filed than VOF (because we don't have such discontinuty that is in VOF, also filtering of phase-field variable can be tested) and probably u can manage it with phase-filed, i don't knowe whose phase-field model u r used but, phase-field has several parameters that should be adjusted to give correct result, so u have good opportunity to do more with phase-field and then put it away, also it can be see as an original and interesting work.

Hoang Join Date: Apr 2009 Location: Delft, Netherlands Posts: 92 Rep Power: 9 Hi all, I am thinking of using Phase-field modeling in my case, a Taylor bubble moving in a channel. As far as I know, OF did not support this phase field modelling. Can you please share your experience of which solver is most similar to that method as a starting point? Regards, Duong
