Title: Diffuse-interface simulation of a liquid bridge snap-off

Description: An axisymmetric liquid bridge snap-off is simulated using a coupled Cahn-Hilliard and Navier-Stokes equations. The simulation shows the snap-off, formation of satellite and sub-satellite droplets, coalescence of the satellite and sub-satellite droplets, and oscillation of the parent drops.
