VOF can be used. Condensation have to be described with an additional law at each volume. Take a look at the work of Prof. Philip Liu: http://www.cee.cornell.edu/faculty/i...bio&netid=pll3

This should be quite easy - all you need are appropriate source/sink terms in the volume fraction equation. Be careful how you discretise the terms to avoid the volume fraction solution to go out of bounds (0 <= gamma <= 1).

Good luck,

Hrv
