Default Static evaporating meniscus with mass source term and convection heat transfer

Hi all,

I want to model a static evaporating meniscus as a boundary in FLUENT with a corresponding convection boundary condition (h_evaporation) and a mass source term applied only to the boundary faces representing the evaporative mass flux out of the domain. If I define the meniscus as a wall boundary to access the convection settings, how can I apply the source term to the adjacent cells? I have seen some UDF codes for applying a mass source term on the boundary cells, but I don't know how to apply both mass flux and convection at the same time.

I really appreciate it if you can help me with this.

Thank you.
