Interface-Resolving Simulations of Gas-Liquid Two-Phase Flows in Solid Structures of Different Wettability

Cai, Xuan

Abstract:
This PhD study is devoted to numerical investigations of two-phase flows on and through elementary and complex solid structures of varying wettability. The phase-field method is developed and implemented in OpenFOAM®. The numerical method/code is verified by a series of test cases of two-phase flows, and then applied to investigate: (1) droplet wetting on solid surfaces; (2) air bubble rising and interacting with cellular structures and (3) gas-liquid interfacial flows in foam structures.
