For example, a closed box, contains about half box of water at first, then heats the bottom and cool the top. Water will get boiling, and water stream will condense at the top wall. Can CFX simulate this complicated phenomena? If so, please send me some related information. Best Regards, whiz

But to simulate condensation, the water is treated as dispersed fluid, and the water vapour as continuous fluid. Am I right? If boiling and condensation can be calculated simultaneously, how to set the heat transfer model between the two fluid (water and water vapour)? Are the all continous fluid? How to set the it? Bow with best Regards, whiz

You will always need to run with: - inhomogenous heat transfer - thermal phase change model - two resistance heat transfer option. If your flow regime does not fall into the classical continuous-disperse category then you may not be able to use any of the continuous-disperse heat transfer relationships (eg: Ranz Marshall). You will have to play around with one of the other options (eg two heat transfer coefficients, two Nusselt numbers, etc..) until you get something that looks sensible. It will depend on your flow regime: small bubbles, large bubbles, bubbles, slugging, etc... Neale. wwjshirley likes this.
