Manuscript Title: VOFI - a library to initialize the volume fraction scalar field
Authors: S. Bnà, S. Manservisi, R. Scardovelli, P. Yecko, S. Zaleski
Program title: VOFI
Catalogue identifier: AEYT_v1_0
Distribution format: tar.gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 200(2016)291
Programming language: C, with C++ and FORTRAN interfaces.
Computer: Any computer with a C compiler.
Operating system: Tested on x86 with Linux (openSUSE 13.1, Ubuntu 12.04) and Mac OS X.
Has the code been vectorised or parallelized?: The code does not need any change to be used in parallel with domain decomposition, as done for example in the Paris-Simulator code, http://parissimulator.sf.net, that is massively parallel and uses the Vofi library.
Word size: 64 bits
Keywords: Implicit functions, Numerical integration, Volume fraction function, VOF method.
Classification: 4.11.

Nature of problem:
The library computes the volume fraction of a cubic grid cell cut by an interface described by an implicit function.

Solution method:
The library computes the integration limits along two coordinate directions and the local height function, that is the integrand of a double Gauss-Legendre integration with a variable number of nodes.

Restrictions:
Cartesian grids with cubic cells.

Running time:
Fractions of a second for a grid cell cut by the interface.
