Hear2020 is on a distinguished road
I want to simulate thermal energy storage in Fluent with two phase materials which are Oil and PCM. in inlet and outlet I want to introduce Oil as a phase and a mixing phase in the body of container. But Fluent just consider one phase for all inlet, outlet and surface body. How can I introduce separate phase for them? Another question is that: should I use VOF for introducing oil that enters to the container as a heat transfer media?
