Filament Capturing with the Multimaterial Moment-of-Fluid Method
Professor Mark Sussman
Department of Mathematics, Florida State University, USA

A novel method for capturing two-dimensional, thin, under-resolved material configurations, known as “filaments" is presented in the context of interface reconstruction. This technique uses a partitioning procedure to detect disconnected regions of material in the advective preimage of a cell (indicative of a filament) and makes use of the existing functionality of the Multimaterial Moment-of-Fluid interface reconstruction method to accurately capture the under-resolved feature, while exactly conserving volume. An algorithm for Adaptive Mesh Refinement in the presence of laments is developed so that refinement is introduced only near the tips of laments and where the Moment-of-Fluid reconstruction error is still large. Comparison to the standard Moment-of-Fluid method is made. It is demonstrated that using filament capturing at a given resolution yields gains in accuracy comparable to introducing an additional level of mesh refinement at significantly lower cost. This is research with M. Jemison and M. Shashkov.
