Vacuum Initial condiction

hello, every one
i have a problem

does the Initial condiction can set Vacuum ?

thanks

voids can be assigned pressure and temperature, but without the use of a bubble model it does not make much difference for one-fluid incompressible flow. What is the application you are using it for?

so the voids is air?
I don't know the void means,and how to use it.

i wanna use vapor started into a tube to condensation and I think the tube should not have any fluids at first. so i wanna set the tube as vacuum condiction at first.

thank you very much! you really help me many times!

If you want to inject vapor into a vacuum, then a void model will not work. You will need to use the two-fluid model, with fluid #1 representing liquid phase and fluid #2 representing the vapor. The initial vacuum will have to approximated by the vapor at a low density.

You can then inject vapor (fluid #2) at a mesh boundary by specifying the velocity, density and temperature at it. As it condenses it will form fluid #1, liquid that is..
