TL;DR: In this paper, the concept of a fractional volume of fluid (VOF) has been used to approximate free boundaries in finite-difference numerical simulations, which is shown to be more flexible and efficient than other methods for treating complicated free boundary configurations.

Abstract: Several methods have been previously used to approximate free boundaries in finite-difference numerical simulations. A simple, but powerful, method is described that is based on the concept of a fractional volume of fluid (VOF). This method is shown to be more flexible and efficient than other methods for treating complicated free boundary configurations. To illustrate the method, a description is given for an incompressible hydrodynamics code, SOLA-VOF, that uses the VOF technique to track free fluid surfaces.

TL;DR: In this article, a theory for the propagation of stress waves in a porous elastic solid containing compressible viscous fluid is developed for the lower frequency range where the assumption of Poiseuille flow is valid.

Abstract: A theory is developed for the propagation of stress waves in a porous elastic solid containing compressible viscous fluid. The emphasis of the present treatment is on materials where fluid and solid are of comparable densities as for instance in the case of water‐saturated rock. The paper denoted here as Part I is restricted to the lower frequency range where the assumption of Poiseuille flow is valid. The extension to the higher frequencies will be treated in Part II. It is found that the material may be described by four nondimensional parameters and a characteristic frequency. There are two dilatational waves and one rotational wave. The physical interpretation of the result is clarified by treating first the case where the fluid is frictionless. The case of a material containing viscous fluid is then developed and discussed numerically. Phase velocity dispersion curves and attenuation coefficients for the three types of waves are plotted as a function of the frequency for various combinations of the characteristic parameters.

TL;DR: In this paper, a new technique is described for the numerical investigation of the time-dependent flow of an incompressible fluid, the boundary of which is partially confined and partially free The full Navier-Stokes equations are written in finite-difference form, and the solution is accomplished by finite-time step advancement.

Abstract: A new technique is described for the numerical investigation of the time‐dependent flow of an incompressible fluid, the boundary of which is partially confined and partially free The full Navier‐Stokes equations are written in finite‐difference form, and the solution is accomplished by finite‐time‐step advancement The primary dependent variables are the pressure and the velocity components Also used is a set of marker particles which move with the fluid The technique is called the marker and cell method Some examples of the application of this method are presented All non‐linear effects are completely included, and the transient aspects can be computed for as much elapsed time as desired

TL;DR: In this article, the correlation of theory and experiment for incompressible isotropic elastic solids under finite strain was extended to incorporate the effects of compressibility (under isothermal conditions) with the result that experimental data on the compressibility of rubberlike materials are adequately accounted for.

Abstract: A method of approach to the correlation of theory and experiment for incompressible isotropic elastic solids under finite strain was developed in a previous paper (Ogden 1972) Here, the results of that work are extended to incorporate the effects of compressibility (under isothermal conditions) The strain-energy function constructed for incompressible materials is augmented by a function of the density ratio with the result that experimental data on the compressibility of rubberlike materials are adequately accounted for At the same time the good fit of the strain-energy function arising in the incompressibility theory to the data in simple tension, pure shear and equibiaxial tension is maintained in the compressible theory without any change in the values of the material constants A full discussion of inequalities which may reasonably be imposed upon the material parameters occurring in the compressible theory is included
