Droplets resulting from liquid filament contraction have been widely used in industrial processes. However, detailed investigations of liquid compound filament contraction processes are lacking in the literature. Therefore, this study provides a numerical investigation of the contraction of a two-layered compound filament. The simulations are based on an axisymmetric front-tracking method. It is found that because of the interfacial tension force, the initially long cylindrical filament contracts to a compound droplet without any breakup or breaks up into smaller droplets during contraction. Unlike simple filaments, the presence of the inner filament inside the compound filament resul...
