The viscous fingering instability occurs when a more viscous fluid is displaced by a less
viscous one in a Hele-Shaw cell. Instabilities at the interface form a variety of complex patterns via
tip splitting. In this work, we adopt the phase field method coupling with Navier Stokes equations
via surface tension to investigate the influence of several force combinations, such as inertial,
surface tension, and viscous forces, on the flow behaviors in three dimensions.
