The balance equations of multiphase flows are classified and techniques are reviewed for rendering these partial differentials into partial or completely discretized equations. Numerical methods are presented for integrating the partially, and for solving the completely discretized equations. The issues of computing accuracy and economy are discussed. Numerical methods used in major computer codes for multiphase flow analyses are reviewed, and it is demonstrated that quantification of computing errors and improvement of computing economy should be the objectives of future research in numerical methods for multiphase flows.
