In the context of simulation of bubble dynamics and cavitation, even the simple problem of the collapse of a spherical bubble is challenging to compute accurately with general, three-dimensional, interface-capturing schemes. Difficulties arise from both the physical model of the multicomponent fluid and the discretization scheme. Pathologies associated with each factor are identified and solutions to remedy specific issues are proposed.
