The numerical simulation of multiphase flows presents several challenges, namely the transport of different phases within de domain and the inclusion of capillary effects. Here, these are approached by enforcing a discrete physics-compatible solution. Extending our previous work on the discretization of surface tension [N. Valle, F. X. Trias, and J. Castro, 'An energy-preserving level set method for multiphase flows,' J. Comput. Phys., vol. 400, p. 108991, 2020] with a consistent mass and momentum transfer a fully energy-preserving multiphase flow method is presented. This numerical technique is showcased within the simulation of a falling film under several working conditions related to the normal operation of LiBr absorption chillers.
