We present a method to simulate surface tension between immiscible materials within an inviscid compressible flow solver. The material interface is represented using the volume of fluid technique with piecewise-linear interface reconstruction. We employ the continuum surface force model for surface tension, implemented in the context of the MUSCL-Hancock finite volume method for the Euler equations on an adaptively refined Eulerian mesh. We show results for droplet verification test cases.
