Hi all,

Our work is based on the fact that, under the VOF framework, the flow of the isothermal mixture belongs to the variable-density incompressible flow category. For such flows, VOF-based solvers of OpenFOAM fail to construct the correct governing equations for turbulence modeling. varRhoTurbVOF contains a set of newly designed VOF-based solvers which could use the desired governing equations for turbulence quantities.

The paper which explains the issue and solution in detail is available at

Implementations for various OpenFOAM versions are provided at​

I have already reported this to both ESI Group and OpenFOAM Foundation, details and updates could be found at

I hope the community could test the new solvers on a wide range of cases and give feedback.

Best regards,
