Navier-Stokes Numerical Algorithms for Free-Surface Flow Computations: An Overview
A survey of fixed-grid methods for the calculation of free-surface flows is presented. These methods are based on a single-fluid formulation that is described first. Then concise overviews of the volume-of-fluid, level-set, and front-tracking algorithms are given.
