A Framework for the Implementation of Coupled Multiphase Flow Problems Using the deal.II Library and Its Application to Electrowetting

Abner J Salgado


The purpose of this work is to introduce some ideas aimed at simplifying the implementation of
schemes for the solution
of multiphysics and multidomain problems and describe their realization in the \dealII library.
Namely, we introduce a general interface to describe problems and how different sub-problems might
depend on each
other. We illustrate the applicability of these concepts on the discretization of the phenomenon
known as electrowetting.
