Numerical simulations are performed using coupled level-set and volume of fluid (CLSVOF) method to capture the formation and propagation of a vortex ring when a drop coalesces at the interface of a pool of same liquid and a lighter liquid resting above it. A Vortex ring is generated near the interface on coalescence of a drop. Subsequently the vortex ring propagates into the liquid pool. The propagation of a vortex ring and its dependence on the shape as well as impact velocity of the drop are investigated in this work.
