 July 2, 2004, 01:40 Differences between VOF and phase field #1 2L Guest   Posts: n/a Hello ! Can someone give me the differences between Volume Of Fluid (VOF) method and phase field method ? In each case, one defines a scalar for knowing in which phase the grid cell is, and in each case, the grid is fixed. So I don't really understant what's different with the phase field method. Thanks in advance !

One is advected by velocity and after that we reconstruct volume fraction. The other is governed by Cahn-Hilliard equation. Most of cases, the volume fraction changes across interface within three grid points in VOF, but in the phase field method the scalar changes 5~8 grid points and across interface the phase field changes smoothly. You can check my website for the movies from the phase field method for the multi-component system. http://math.uci.edu/~jskim/simulations.html

Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, Can someone explain the difference between the G-equation used in combustion and a transport equation for the reaction progress variable, for example. I know that they have different forms, but they are looking for the same answer (i.e, an accurate description of the flame front) so I am wondering what advantages and disadvantages of them are?
