|ABSTRACT||We perform 3D incompressible two-phase ﬂow simulations of rising droplets. Based on a similar 2D benchmark, a 3D benchmark conﬁguration with two test cases is formulated in which we compare the ﬂow solvers DROPS, NaSt3DGPF and OpenFOAM. All codes adopt different numerical techniques. We deﬁne several quantities of interest and investigate their temporal evolution in both test cases. For most benchmark variables we obtain a high level of agreement and establish reference data for other ﬂow solvers.|
