Abstract
We present an efficient technique for the solution of free surface flow problems using level set and a parallel edge-based finite elementmethod. An unstructured semi-explicit solution scheme is proposed. A custom data structure, obtained by blending node-based and edge-based approaches is presented so to allow a good parallel performance. In addition to standard velocity extrapolation (for the convection of the level set function), an explicit extrapolation of the pressure field is performed in ...
