Abstract

A unified framework for coupled Navier-Stokes/Cahn-Hilliard equations is developed using, as a basis, 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.
