The temporal instability of parallel two-phase mixing layers is studied with a linear stability code by considering a composite error function base flow. The eigenfunctions of the linear problem are used to initialize the velocity and volume fraction fields for direct numerical simulations of the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations with the open-source GERRIS flow solver. We compare the growth rate of the most unstable mode from the linear stability problem and from the simulation results at moderate and large density and viscosity ratios in order to validate the code for a wide range of physical parameters.

Abstract

The temporal instability of parallel two-phase mixing layers is studied with a linear stability code by considering a composite error function base flow. The eigenfunctions of the linear problem are used to initialize the velocity and volume fraction fields for direct numerical simulations of the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations with the open-source GERRIS flow solver. We compare the growth rate of the most unstable mode from the linear stability problem and from the simulation results at moderate and large density and viscosity ratios in order to validate the code for a wide range of physical parameters. The efficiency of the adaptive mesh refinement scheme is also discussed.
