Abstract : A new Cartesian method for bifluid incompressible flows with high density ratios is presented. The specificity of the method relies on a sharp second order numerical scheme for the spatial resolution of the discontinuous elliptic problem for the pressure. The Navier-Stokes equations are integrated in time thanks to a fractional step method based on the Chorin scheme and discretized in space on a Cartesian mesh. The bifluid interface is implicitly represented using a level set function. The numerical tests show the improvements due to this sharp method compared to classical first order methods.
