Hello nimasam.
I have tried to develop my solver for boiling for dimensioning a heat exchanger with phase change for academic purposes. I would be really glad if i could look into your final code, I have problems with temperature distribution in steam phase... my email is mlubej@siol.net, I am a phd student of chemical engineering. Best regards, Martin

Dear Nima Sam,
I'm working on the optimization of an evaporator for liquified petroleum gas. For this, I need to model the evaporation of LPG as a consequence of heat transfer. Can you please sent me your solver? My email is: kcoumans (at) hotmail.com Thank you very much!

Hi nimasam:
I am working on the heat pipe simulation. Is you code can deal with condensation also? Anyway, I would like to see the code! Please send it to me. jimmymiller38200@gmail.com Thanks

Dear nimasam,
I am also working in boiling of refrigerants in microchannels. I would also be very interested in your code. My email is anastasios.georgoulas@gmail.com. If you send me the code please send me also your full details (name, surname, affiliation etc) for citation and acknowledgement purposes in any potential future publication of my research group. Thank you very much in advance, ageorg

haver you find out the reson of the high temperature and pressure? I have carried out the same model by commercial software and the results seemed to be unreasonable which is same with yours. thanks! Wond

Hello everyone!
If you are interesting in VOFsolver with evaporation I can give some useful (I hope ) information because we realized it for the problem of drop evaporation. First of all we chose interPhaseChangeFoam as the starting point and add temperature equation there. To avoid problems with divergence during numerical solving one may write temperature equation in nonconservative form in the following way: fvScalarMatrix TEqn ( rhoC*fvm::ddt(T) + rhoC*fvm::div(phi, T)  fvm::laplacian(K , T) + L*Y ); Here: volScalarField K = alpha1*K1 + (scalar(1)alpha1)*K2; volScalarField rhoC = alpha1*rho1*C1 + (scalar(1)  alpha1)*rho2*C2; K1, K2, C1 and C2  heat transfer and heat capacity coefficients for both phases (by the way we consider only onecomponent gas phase  air without steam, it is lack of our model). L  latent evaporation heat; Y  evaporated mass in the volume (will be defined below). Next, it is need to modify equation for alpha1 (alphaEqn.H). In the solver interPhaseChangeFoam there are two source terms named Su and Sp. Su answer for the source term which calculated explicitly, Sp  implicitly, so the next equation is solving: (... left part for alpha1 equation ...) = Sp*alpha1 + Su. In our model it is necessary to calculate evaporation implicitly, so Su should be equal 0 and Sp should be calculated as Sp = Y/rho1/alpha1. The main question is about Y calculation. Y should be "evaporated mass in the volume" whereas when we consider evaporation we have only "evaporated mass from the square" (named S). It can be shown that: Y = S*grad(alpha1) Quantity S is evaluating according to the evaporation model. We use model of B. Abramzon and W.A. Sirignano and define S as: S = D*Sh*rho_gas*ln(1+Bm)/R, where D  diffusion coefficient, Sh  modified Sherwood number, rho_gas=rho2  gas density, Bm  mass Spalding number (it is a function of temperature), R  radius of VOFinterface curvature (for the model details you can ask me or look at articles ). The main problem is the calculation of R, let me know if you need more information about it. So, in alphaEqn.H you need the next code: volScalarField vDotvAlphal (Y/rho1/max(alpha1,1E8) ); volScalarField Sp ( IOobject ("Sp", runTime.timeName(), mesh), vDotvAlphal ); volScalarField Su should be equal 0. Unfortunately, our code is written in "ugly" manner and I do not want to paste it here (I am ashamed for it). But if you really need it simply write here and I post it in a separate message.

Hello sahas.
I work on VOF solver with evaporation and I'm interested by your code. If is possible I would like to see your code. Thanks. Last edited by Yoann; July 29, 2013 at 07:35.

Hello Yoann!
I attach tar.gz archive with the solver. I should note that there is a directory phaseChangeTwoPhaseMixtures which is superfluous for present solver but I feel too lazy to clean the dependencies The new/modified files are: interPhaseChangeFoam.C, TEqn.H, alphaEqn.H and createFields.H. Also I beg my pardon if the problems with solver running arise since the man responsible for the code is absent now. Nevertheless do not hesitate to ask me about the code Apropos, I should make some notes about temperature equation. Right equation is in conservative form: fvScalarMatrix TEqn ( fvm::ddt(rhoC,T) + fvm::div(rhoC*phi, T)  fvm::laplacian(K , T) + L*Y ); But as I mentioned before there are difficulties with its numerical solving. So it is better to use nonconservative form. But during equation transformation some additional terms arise: rho*(Cp1Cp2)*T*Y/rho1Cp*(rho1rho2)*T*Y/rho1. Fortunately these terms are negligible comparing with L*Y so they can be omitted.

Hi everybody
I have a primary problem I installed the PGI visual Fortran successfully but i don't know how could i run a program you know first it should be compiled then Run it can anybody explain the sequence of steps needed to Run a program in PGI Visual Fortran I mean?

Thank you for Reply I see now... is this solver that you are attach,simulate the evaporation at the interface between fluid and gas by increasing Temp?is this solver have source term for phase change? i dont work with interPHasechangeFoam solver....but i think this solver simulate Cavitation with reduce pressure....
