Default boiling

Hello, I am simulating boiling of a fluid in a tube. Therefore I use the UDF that fluent prescribes in an example: m_lg = -0.1*C_VOF(cell,liq)*C_R(cell,liq)*fabs(C_T(cell,li q)-T_SAT)/T_SAT as the source term in the equations. Does someone know where this formula comes from, what the theoretical background is of this formula? Thanks, Kaatje

I already tried out these 2 tutorials but they don't explain the UDF for the source terms. But thank you for your suggestion. Kaatje
