A numerical method for the simulation of fluid flows with complex free surfaces is presented. The liquid is assumed to be a Newtonian or a viscoelastic fluid. The compressible effects of the surrounding gas are taken into account, as well as surface tension forces. An Eulerian approach based on the volume-of-fluid formulation is chosen. A time splitting algorithm, together with a two-grids method, allows the various physical phenomena to be decoupled. A chronological approach is adopted to highlight the successive improvements of the model and the wide range of applications. Numerical results show the potentialities of the method.
