The development of predictive capability for free
surface flow with phase change is essential to evaluate
liquid wall protection schemes for various fusion
chambers in IFE and MFE. This paper presents a
numerical methodology for free surface flow with heat
and mass transfer to help resolve feasibility issues
encountered in the aforementioned fusion engineering
fields. The numerical methodology is conducted within
the framework of the incompressible flow with the heat
and mass transfer model. We present a new second-
order projection method, in conjunction with
Approximate-Factorization techniques (AF method)
for incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. The level
set method was used to capture the free surface of the
flow and the deformation of the droplets accurately.
This numerical investigation identifies the physics
characterizing transient heat and mass transfer of the
