How? 2) Is it possible to change the thermophysical properties of the solver which consider each phase separately? Best of all, Maryam

This tutorial is for incompressible flow and it starts with a good description about defining properties and equations in two different phases. For compressible flows, you can find other similar reports. For example, the tutorial/report on A description and improvement of the interPhaseChangeFoam solver for Large Eddy Simulation of cavitating flow (Author:NaiXian LU) in the same website. Yours Anil Kunwar

Each phase has its own dictionary with the thermophysical properties. Mattia Annier and jamestangx like this.
