Numerical models of surface tension


Surface tension is the driving force of a large number of phenomena of great theoretical and practical importance. In this seminar I will attempt to give a general overview of the theoretical and numerical techniques available to accurately model surface tension at the interface between fluids of different properties. This will be followed by a demonstration of a novel algorithm which guarantees balance and momentum-conservation and is naturally applicable to flows driven by Marangoni stresses.
