Purpose – The paper aims to clarify the advantages of the virtual grid-based (VGB) front tracking method developed for two-phase bubble flows in comparison with currently used grid-based and grid-free methods.
Design/methodology/approach – The paper opted for using two test cases to demonstrate the advantages of this VGB approach for front tracking.
Findings – The results from the test runs show a ten times higher calculation accuracy.
Research limitations/implications – Due to the limited test runs, the VGB approach may not fit some other applications. Researchers are encouraged to further develop and test this new approach.
Practical implications – The paper includes implications for further development of a comprehensive approach for front tracking and data communications between the front and computational grid.
Originality/value – This paper fulfills an identified need to study how the front tracking can be made more accurate and reliable.
