Default HEM with Fluent: Use NIST Real Gas Model in 2-phase region

Hi everyone,

I am trying to model a two-phase flow with the Homogeneous Equilibrium Model (HEM), i.e. modeling the flow as 1-phase Problem and formulating an enthalpy-based Energy equation by the means of a UDS. Then, the Enthalpy and Pressure define the thermodynamic state of the fluid and I want to obtain all material properties (Density, cp, viscosity, etc.) from the NIST Real Gas Model. Unfortunately, Fluent Needs the fluid to remain either subcooled or superheated to use the NIST real gas model, and cannot perform calculations in the 2-phase Region.
I read on the Ansys Student Forum, that some "expert commands" exist to override these Default Settings and use the NIST Real Gas Model in the 2-phase Region anyways. Does anyone know how to do this, exactly?

I would really appreciate the help, as otherwise this would require writing a full UDRGM containing the same Information as the NIST RGM.

Thanks in Advance!

I am also trying to model a two-phase flow using a barotropic equation of state. Due to the temperature-independent properties, can i use the same properties (specific_heat, enthalpy and so on) according to UDRGM example in ANSYS help documentation? Therefore, I just change the material properties (density, speed of sound and viscosity).
Is this right?
Kind regards.
