Application of density-functional theory to calculation of flows of three-phase mixtures with phase transitions

The problem of mathematical modeling of flows of three-phase three-component mixtures with phase transitions has been investigated using density-functional theory. The analytical and numerical results demonstrating the efficient application of this approach to description of two-phase flows were obtained earlier. In the present work, methods extending the density-functional technique to the case of three-phase mixtures have been proposed. Numerical solutions for flows of three-phase mixtures, including those with phase transitions, have been given.
