 July 19, 2011, 22:44 #4 Member   wibi ario Join Date: Feb 2011 Posts: 46 Rep Power: 8 using VOF for my model of my three phase simulation....should i add UDF for that, or not???because i read in FLUENT user guide that if i have more than one secondary phase i should adding some UDF called phase domain index???...would you explain it to me?? i'm very confusing should i use UDF or not for the three phase simulation

(i almost did this for two years and no results)
