Water vapor condensation

I'm trying to simulate the condensation of water vapor of moist air as a mass transfer.
I have a multiphase fluid: phase 1 is a mixture of air and water vapor, and phase 2 is water liquid.
I wrote a UDF where I used a macro called "define_mass_transfer" and compiled it in Fluent. But when I try to initialize the calculation, I receive a "segmentation violation error".
Does anyone know why?
Or can anyone tell me another way to simulate condensation?
The UDF I wrote is this:
real H2O_Saturation_Pressure(real T)
DEFINE_MASS_TRANSFER(vap_condensation,c,t,from_pha se_index,from_species_index,to_phase_index,to_spec ies_index)
real x_h2o, x_sat, w_sat; /* w=mv/ma; x=mv/(ma+mv) */
#define p 101325
x_h2o = C_YI(c,t,from_species_index);
w_sat = 0.622*H2O_Saturation_Pressure(C_T(c,t))/(p-H2O_Saturation_Pressure(C_T(c,t)));
x_sat = w_sat/(1+w_sat);
m_lg = 0.;
if (x_h2o > x_sat)
m_lg = (x_h2o-x_sat)*C_R(c,t);

Did you figure out how to model your condensation successfully? I am interested in modelling condensation myself and would like to know how others have tried implementing it.

Condensation is like evaporation. It can be modeled using phase interaction of the VOF models.
