Vincenzo_ is on a distinguished road
Im tring to model a combustion of methane and air to create the heat source to boil water all in the same chamber, this is, water enters a chamber and encounters a flame caused by the combustion fo air and methane.

I know how to simulate combustion and I know how to simulate boiling using the eulerian boiling model but apart one from the other. Can't find a way to combine both of them in a single simulation.

I'm selecting Eulerian boiling model,I choose 3 phases: water, steam and methane-air (which is set in species transport), when I go to Phases interactions on the mass transfer mechanism I cant find the boiling model nor the evaporation-condensation, so how I'm supposed to set the saturation temperature? It seemss that this is not the way to proceed so...

Does anyone knows what models should I use to simulate the combustion of methane and air + the boiling of water in the same chamber? Where do I put the saturation temperature?

If it's not possible then I was thinking in taking the heat data generated from the combustion model and use it as an entry for the boiling at which I ask, is this possible? what data should I need to export?
