Default Mass Transfer

Dear All,

I got a simple multiphase (VOF, volume of fluid) problem:

my domain is x=[0 to 0.01] m and y = [0 to 0.0001] m (rectangular)

my initial fluid is water (primary fluid, rho = 1000)

my secundary fluid is steam (rho = 1)

I got mass-transfer from water to steam in the region [0.004 < x < 0.006]

When I run the simulation, I see the vapour appear in this region due to the mass transfer, but I also expect the domain where the vapour exists to become larger due to the density difference. This is not the case.

Has anybody an idea to overcome this?

kind regards

Raoul Liew TU/e Holland
