Two different solutions are provided. The first one is a steady state solution in the reference frame linked to the interface, whereas the second one corresponds to an unsteady problem for which one of the phases is initially superheated or subcooled.

The assessment of the consistency of a numerical method for surface tension modeling is proposed by comparison to analytical results. The first test case consists in verifying the equilibrium shape of a cylindrical drop. In the second test case, an initially square cylindrical drop oscillates under the effect of surface tension forces. The objective of the two test cases is to estimate whether the discretization error on the curvature of an interface may generate numerical parasitic currents.

The objective of this test case is to validate the advection volume fraction algorithm for a vortex velocity field. Two initial shapes are proposed: a circular concentration field and an severed circular concentration field. The numerical diffusion, the mass conservation and the advection accuracy can be estimated to demonstrate the quality of an interface tracking technique.

Two advection numerical tests dedicated to strong interface stretching are proposed. The first test case considers a single vortex centered in a square box, whereas in the second one a periodic multi-vortex velocity field is generated in a square cavity. An initially circular concentration shape is distorted during n time iterations. Then, the flow is reversed during n time iterations to recover the initial shape. After 2n iterations, the theoretical solution of the scalar advection problem should be identical to the initial interface shape.

The flow induced by buoyancy forces on an oil inclusion in a cavity full of water is considered. While the density difference effect is counteracted by viscosity and surface tension, an unsteady turbulent flow develops leading to strong interface shearing and stretching with drop extraction and collapse. The final stage is a stratified configuration with the oil on top of water which should be predicted by the numerical simulation.

The geometry of the experiment proposed as a benchmark is a glass channel of rectangular cross section that contains two immiscible fluid of different densities. The channel is suddenly tilted at a small angle from the horizontal and a Kelvin-Helmholtz instability develops under certain conditions. It is suggested to compare the numerical simulation with the experimental values of the most unstable wave number, the starting time and the growth rate of the instability, and the wave speed.
