Two-phase binary fluids and immiscible fluids described by an order parameter. (English) Zbl 0857.76008

Summary: A unified framework for coupled Navier Stokes/Cahn-Hilliard equations is developed using a balance law for microforces in conjunction with constitutive equations consistent with a mechanical version of the second law. As a numerical application of the theory, we consider the kinetics of coarsening for a binary fluid in two space dimensions.
