This investigation continues the development of an anti-diffusive volume of fluid method [1] by improving accuracy through the addition of an artificial diffusion term, with a negative diffusion coefficient, to the original advection equation describing the evolution of the fluid volume fraction. The advection and diffusion processes are split into a set of two partial differential equations (PDEs). The improved anti-diffusive Volume of Fluid (VOF) method is coupled with a two-fluid flow solver to predict free surface flows and illustrated by examples given in two-dimensional flows. The first numerical example is a solitary wave travelling in a tank. The second example is a plunging wave generated by flow over a submerged obstacle of prescribed shape on a horizontal floor. The computational results are validated against available experimental data.
