Abstract
The eXtended Finite Element Method (X-FEM) has been successfully used in two-phase flow problems involving a moving interface. In order to simulate problems involving more than two phases, the X-FEM has to be further eXtended. The proposed approach is presented in the case of a quasi-static Stokes n-phase flow and it is based on using an ordered collection of level set functions to describe the location of the phases. A level set hierarchy allows describing triple junctions avoiding overlapping ...
