A finite element based level set method for two-phase incompressible flows

Sven Groß, Volker Reichelt, Arnold Reusken
2006 Computing and Visualization in Science  
We present a method that has been developed for the efficient numerical simulation of two-phase incompressible flows. For capturing the interface between the flows the level set technique is applied.  ...  For reparametrization of the level set function a new variant of the Fast Marching method is introduced.  ...  The first experiment shows the effect of the reparametrization and the smoothing of the level set function.
