Hello friends,

In one domain, I have to two different phase and I want to specify the constant physical properties which are different for each phase. can I define the physical properties for each phase separate?
as example: the one metal sphere and air are in cube box. the conductivity of both, sphere and air, are different. So, How I can specify the conductivity for two different phase?

Kind regards
Alpesh

You can either define them as two different constants in your transportProperties, which you read somewhere in your solver. You can also change the twoPhaseMixture class to handle an additional constant, but you still have to define it in your inputfiles somewhere, unless you want it hardcoded in your solver...
