Abstract

The method presented in this monograph is implemented in the computer code IVA, Kolev (1996, 1999a, 1999b). The verification of the method is presented in the last Chapter of Volume II. The purpose of this Chapter is to demonstrate the capability of the method in simulating very complex flows - consisting of molten material, gases and water in all their possible combinations. The cases considered here are already documented and discussed in separate publications and the interested reader should go to the original sources for details, especially if he or she is interested in discussions on the physical phenomena and the conclusions for practical applications. What were not given in these publications are the videos corresponding to the discussed cases.
