Hi Foamers,

I am confusing about thermophysicalProperties dictionary . Take a look at this type :

thermoType      hPsiThermo<pureMixture<sutherlandTransport<specieThermo<hConstThermo<perfectGas>>>>>;

mixture         air 1 28.9 1007 0 1.4792e-06 116;
I don't understand why heat fusion of air is zero? I think heat fusion of air is not zero.Can anybody clarify this issue for me ?

Thanks and best regards,

P.S. In all thermophysicalProperties dictionaries In tutorial cases the heat fusion is zero .

the "heat fusion" is of no importants for a fluid flow without reactions. Therefore, the value is set to zero
