Abstract: ABSTRACTInterface dynamics of two-phase flow, with relevance for leakage of oil retained by mechanical oil barriers, is studied by means of a 2D lattice-Boltzmann method combined with a phase-field model for interface capturing. A Multi-RelaxationTime (MRT) model of the collision process is used to obtain a numerically stable model at high Reynolds-number flow. In the phase-field model, the interface is given a finite but small thickness where the fluid properties vary continuosly across a thin interface laye…
