In this article, the effect of surface tension on a stratified flow of two immiscible fluids between two parallel plates is examined. The level-set method is used to model the interface evolution between the fluids. To ensure mass conservation of both fluids, a localized mass correction scheme is employed. For demonstration purposes, the Finite-Volume method is used to solve the governing equations. Two different situations namely, the flows of two fluids of identical properties and two fluids of different properties are examined. These results are compared with that of the VOF method.
