There are many interesting phenomena concerning soap film. One of them is the soap film catenoid. The catenoid is the equilibrium shape of the soap film that is stretched between two circular rings. When the two rings move farther apart, the radius of the neck of the soap film will decrease until it reaches zero and the soap film is split. In our simulation, we show the evolution of the soap film when the rings move apart before the film splits. We use the BMO algorithm for the evolution of a surface accelerated by the mean curvature.
