Abstract: Interfacial flows where two or more fluids have interfacial surfaces are often found in environmental and industrial engineering applications. The objective of this study is to investigate the fluid dynamics of three-dimensional (3D) two- and three-phase multiphase flow problems,such as bubbles,droplets,liquid jet,falling liquid films,breaking waves and their interaction with complex geometries. In this talk, two numerical codes (one for finite volume and the other for finite-element control-volume methods) for solving 3D Navier-Stokes equations with interface capturing and large-eddy simulation approach will be presented,and some numerical examples will be shown to provide some insight into the physics and also to demonstrate the capability of the numerical tools developed.
