Cahn-Hilliard vs Singular Cahn-Hilliard equations in simulations of immiscible binary fluids
Lizhen Chen
Keywords:Cahn-Hilliard equations, singular, immiscible binary fluids.
      An efficient semi-implicit spectral method is implemented to solve the Cahn-Hilliard equation with a variable mobility in this paper. We compared the kinetics of bulk-diffusion-dominated and interface-diffusion-dominated coarsening in two-phase systems. As expected, the interface-diffusion-controlled coarsening evolves much slower. Also we find that the velocity field will be caused different greatly by using Singular Cahn-Hilliard equation and using Cahn-Hilliard in the simulation of immiscible binary fluids.
