Machine Learning model for gas-liquid interface reconstruction in CFD numerical simulations

The volume of fluid (VoF) method is widely used in multi-phase flow simulations to track and locate the interface between two immiscible fluids. A major bottleneck of the VoF method is the interface reconstruction step due to its high computational cost and low accuracy on unstructured grids. We propose a machine learning enhanced VoF method based on Graph Neural Networks (GNN) to accelerate the interface reconstruction on general unstructured meshes. We first develop a methodology to generate a synthetic dataset based on paraboloid surfaces discretized on unstructured meshes. We then train a GNN based model and perform generalization tests. Our results demonstrate the efficiency of a GNN based approach for interface reconstruction in multi-phase flow simulations in the industrial context.
