RÉSUMÉ

This article presents a single-fluid formulation to model multiphase flows using the level-set method. The formulation is generic in the sense that additional physics involving heat and mass transfer can be incorporated easily. For demonstration purposes, the finite-volume method is used to discretize the governing equations. Two examples are presented to showcase the present approach.
