Qualitative and quantitative evaluations of volume tracking algorithms such as DA, FLAIR, MARS, CIP and VTEMC were conducted. Wide variety of two-dimensional test problems including (1) a circle transported in simple translation and rotational field, (2) a bubble rising in 45° slanted gravity field, (3) zigzag motion of a bubble in a vertical channel, and (4) a bubble rising in a stagnant liquid in axissymmetric cylindrical coordinate were chosen in the present study. As a result of these tests, the superiority of the cell-centered piecewise linear algorithm with the divergence treatment in operator split and especially with embedded micro cells was confirmed. Applicability of these algorithms to three-dimensional problems has to be examined in the future works.
