This paper investigates a volume tracking algorithm on triangular meshes, associated with modeling free surface flow and multi phase flow on complex geometry. The volume tracking algorithm is divided into two main tasks. First, a piecewise linear reconstructing the interface is used to approximate the interface at each interfacial cell with a segment line. The convergence study of this approach reveals first order accuracy in reproducing a circular material distribution. Second, a Lagrangian time integration accompanied by a full remap is carried out in order to advect volume material in time. A circular material distribution is tested under simple translation and rotation. Visualization of results shows that the circular shape is conserved while first order accuracy is observed.
