Spectral difference simulation of two-phase flows

This paper presents a spectral difference method to simulate compressible two-phase flows using a five-equation diffuse interface model. The scheme is modified to interpolate primitive variables like pressure and velocity when computing fluxes, avoiding spurious oscillations at material interfaces. Several numerical tests assess the approach: a droplet advection case shows stability; the Rider-Kothe vortex and Rayleigh-Taylor instability demonstrate accuracy; shock-droplet and Taylor-Green vortex simulations prove robustness. Overall the high-order method captures interface dynamics well.
