Description/Abstract

A new VOF method is presented comprising of a com-bination of the first order limited downwind scheme with other high order accurate schemes. The method developed is characterized by keeping a sharp interface but avoids complicated geometrical reconstruction as occurs in most volume tracing algorithms. To demon-strate the accuracy and robustness of the method, a selection of numerical experiments are presented in-volving a pure advection problem, a water wave impact caused by a dam breaking and liquid sloshing in a par-tially filled tank.
