Abstract:The volume of fluid (VOF) method is a numerical technique to track the developing free surfaces of liquids in motion. This method can, for example, be applied to compute the liquid flow patterns in a rotating cone reactor. For this application a spherical coordinate system is most suited. The novel derivation of the extended VOF algorithms for this class of applications is presented here. Some practical limitations of this method, that are inherent in the geometry of the described system, are discussed
