 May 31, 2003, 21:46 phase transforming with heat transfer #1 Danual Guest   Posts: n/a i want to simulate the process of liquid water transforming into vaporate water flowing in a hot duct. But i don't know which model i should used. Because all the multiphase models don't considerate the evaporation progress. what should i do? Any help will be appreciated! Thank you!

But the vof multiphase model just model the two phases which don't penetrate into eath other. The most difficult thing i face is how to considerate the heat transfer between the two phases and the transforming of liquid into gas. i appreciate any help. Thanks again!

If the two phases do not penetrate each other means that there is a defined boundary between them (in your case boiling - liquid and wapour). The case where they are penetrating each other is for example mixture of water and alcohol (no boundary between liquids can be defined). As I told you you can find an example of heat transfer and mass transfer in fluent UDF documentaion. Hm. I forgot to ask you - which fluent wersion are you using - with fluent 6.1 it's possible to do this, but I'm not shure for previous versions. Anyway - check UDF documentation (FLUENT 6.1 - chapter - 4.4.2). REGARDS, AND GOOD LUCK MATEUS
