I am solving VOF formulation and I was wondering if there is a way to specify mass flux bc on the outflow boundary. More specifically, pressure-outlet BC. I know there is a mass inlet BC, but can I use that to specify a mass out condition?... Is there a way?

yes, you can use mass inlet to specify mass out.. just have the direction of velocity out of the domain
