Dear all,

I am almost a new user of Fluent, and I am trying to model a quite complicate phenomenon.

I am interested in modeling the evaporation of a liquid mixture made of 2 species (A and B) in a simple geometry like a pipe (I am initially considering a 2D rectangle). During the evaporation only component A will partially evaporate, while component B will remain in the liquid phase.

The mixture has a variable boiling point in function of the concentration of A in the liquid phase. Therefore I think I also need to enable the species transport in order to track the species concentration (I am not very familiar with it).

I am using the mixture model, energy equation, turbulence k-eps, and species transport.

My problem is that I do not know how to relate the saturation temperature of the fluid with the concentration of component A in the liquid phase, since in the phases interaction in "mass transfer, evaporation-condensation" I can express it only in terms of the pressure.

Any suggestions?
Also suggestions related on how the problem can be tackled differently are highly appreciated

Thanks in advance

write some UDFs may be helpful to realize this process

energy equation, multiphase flow, saturation temeprature, species transport, turbulence and laminar
