Hi
I am carying out multiphase analysis (in order to track the interfaces) using VOF method under multiphase flow in Fluent. For two phases I used explicit scheme and it worked well. When I tried it for three phases using the explicit scheme, I am not able to see the the volume fraction under the phases option in the contour plots. In the convergence plot also it doesnt show the convergence of volume fraction.
Can anybody tell me, whether we can use explicit scheme for more than two phases?
thanks in advance

Will anybody please tell me whether it is possible to simulate three phase problem using explicit VOF method in Fluent? I tried and it didn't work out for me.
thanks in advance.
