Unidirectional stratified flow of two fluids between two parallel plates is modeled using the Level-Set method. A localized mass correction term is used to ensure mass conservation at every axial cross section. The mass correction term is based on the mass flowrates. Results for various combinations of density, viscosity and mass flowrate ratios are presented. Available fully-developed exact solutions for unidirectional stratified flow are used to validate the numerical simulations. The evolutions of the interface in the developing region are also captured and compared well with "exact" solutions.
