In this paper, a discontinuous finite element method is presented for the fourth-order nonlinear Cahn-Hilliard equation that models multiphase flows together with the Navier-Stokes equations. A flux scheme suitable for the method is proposed and analyzed together with numerical results. The model is applied to simulate the droplet movement and numerical results are presented.
