A numerical simulation of droplet splashing on a super hydrophobic substrate at 1,000,000 fps. The video won the video category of the UK Fluids Network video competition. https://fluids.ac.uk/
The numerical methods which are used for this numerical simulation are
- The CLSVOF (coupled level set and volume-of-fluid) method
- The THINC/WLIC (tangent of hyperbola for interface capturing/weighted line interface calculation) scheme
- The multi-moment methods (CIP-CSL and VSIAM3)
- The density-scaled CSF (continuum surface force) model within a balanced force formulation.
