Abstract

We present a finite volume implementation of a phase field method in OpenFOAM as a tool to simulate reactive multiphase flows on heterogeneous surfaces. Using this tool, we simulate the formation and growth of a droplet due to a chemical reaction on a hydrophilic catalytic patch surrounded by a hydrophobic wall. We compare the growth dynamics with a quasi-static growth model from literature and show that they qualitatively agree.
