I intend to calculate 'void fraction versus enthalpy' along the channel. Can you help me how to calculate void fraction? I'm in an emergency condition. Waiting for your comments!!! Thanks Everybody

So you mean there is no difference between 'void fraction' and 'volume fraction'? Yes I have seen volume fraction in the post processor, but I didn't know they are the same. Again thanks a lot for your guide. All the best
