An effective algorithm for analysis of nonisothermal capillary interfaces has been developed. The algorithm is based on a coordinate transformation method. The unknown physical domain is mapped onto a rectangular computational domain, with the explicit form of the mapping function not being known. The field variables and the mapping function are determined simultaneously using Picard-type iteration. The algorithm is based on the second-order finite difference discretization and delivers the second-order accuracy, even for very large interfacial distortions. © 1994 Academic Press, Inc.
