A numerical framework to model and simulate gas-liquid-solid three-phase flows is proposed and implemented in this work. The overall algorithm adopts a non-boundary-fitted approach that avoids frequent mesh-updating procedures by defining independent meshes and explicit interfacial points to represent each phase. Here, we couple our existing solvers, the immersed finite element method (IFEM) and the connectivity-free front tracking (CFFT) method that model fluid-solid and gas-liquid interactions, respectively, for the three-phase models. A modified IFEM algorithm is derived for modeling fluid-solid interactions that accounts for the dynamics of the solid, while the CFFT is used here to simulate gas-liquid multi-fluid flows that uses explicit interfacial points to represent the gas-liquid interface and for its easy handling of interface topology changes. Instead of defining different levels simultaneously as used in level sets, an indicator function naturally couples the two methods together to represent and track each of the three phases. Several 2-D and 3-D testing cases are performed to show the robustness and capability of the coupled numerical framework in dealing with complex three-phase problems, in particular free surfaces interacting with deformable solids. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

An reporting system that incorporates prompt objects in a report definition to enable a user to specify answers to questions to customize a report at execution time. A prompt object contains a single question to be answered, validation values for the answer, and attributes indicating how the prompt object is to be processed. A collection of answers is built up in a resolution object. A report is thus defined by selecting prompt objects in place of templates, filters, or any of the aspects of a template or filter. As a separate object, a single prompt may be issued once and the answer supplied to each reference to the prompt object in a report. A resolution object may be created and saved before the execution of a report. The saved resolution object can then be used to answer prompts at the time of the report execution. The resolution object may be created by third parties and transmitted as an XML resolution object, whereupon receipt by the reporting system, the XML resolution object is translated into a reporting system format.

In some embodiments, a web-browser-based presentation and report requests over a network may be facilitated. A request for a first report may be obtained from a user system through a web browser. The first report request may comprise a selection of one or more template or filter combinations for formatting the first report. Control of the web browser may be returned to enable a user to use the web browser to perform one or more other tasks while the first report request is being processed. The one or more other tasks may comprise requesting another report or other task. The first report request may be processed by obtaining and formatting the first report in accordance with the one or more selected template or filter combinations of the first report request. The formatted first report may be transmitted over the network to the web browser of the user system.
