In this paper, a new variant of Shan-Chen multiphase model is used to compute the dynamics of droplet on non-permeable solid surface. The results are compared with published analytical solution for such flow configuration. The modified multiphase model demonstrated good agreement, which further supports its validity in computing multiphase fluid flow.

    We consider a vertex model on the simple-quartic lattice defined by line graphs on the lattice for which there is always an odd number of lines incident at a vertex. This is the odd 8-vertex model which has eight possible vertex configurations. We establish that the odd 8-vertex model is...
