Abstract [en]

This report describes the development of a software for computing viscous incompressiblemultiphase ows. The software does this with solving the coupled non-linear Navier-Stokes(Fluid) and the Cahn-Hilliard (Phase-Field) equations using a Finite Element Method. Thereason for the development is to produce a simulation tool, which eventually is capable ofsimulating the ow of uids inside the OptusAir aeronator manufactured by the Sorubincompany. The solving software developed is built on the ParMetis, PETSc and OpenMPIframeworks. Our primary benchmark has been a geometry resembling the OptusAir product,a cylinder with a rotating bottom. We have made comparisons between simulation resultsand the theory of a free surface in a uniform rotating ow.This thesis shows that the shape of the interface between two uids coincides with theoryto some extent, while the approximate boundary conditions prevent it from coinciding fully.
