This paper deals with the numerical approximation of two immiscible incompressible fluids flow. The two-dimensional problem is mathematically described with the aid of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. The motion of the two phases is treated with the aid of level set method. The surface tension effects are taken into account as well as the contact angle influence. The problem is formulated in a weak sense and discretized with the aid of the finite element method. The details of the numerical methods are given and several possibilities of the realization of the surface tension term are discussed. Numerical results are shown.
