An all Mach number finite volume method for isentropic two-phase flow

We present an implicit-explicit finite volume scheme for isentropic two phase flow in all Mach number regimes. The underlying model belongs to the class of symmetric hyperbolic thermodynamically compatible models. The key element of the scheme consists of a linearisation of pressure and enthalpy terms at a reference state. The resulting stiff linear parts are integrated implicitly, whereas the non-linear higher order and transport terms are treated explicitly. Due to the flux splitting, the scheme is stable under a CFL condition which determined by the resolution of the slow material waves and allows large time steps even in the presence of fast acoustic waves. Further the singular Mach number limits of the model are studied and the asymptotic preserving property of the scheme is proven. In numerical simulations the consistency with single phase flow, accuracy and the approximation of material waves in different Mach number regimes are assessed.
