Hi fiends,

I implement Lee mass transfer model in openFoam (interPhaseChangeFoam)

and in first step I validate it by 1D stefan problem.But in 2D film boiling case

solver doesn't work correctly and mushroom shape doesn't appear and

interface going up and finally give linear shape!!!

in my case Sp=-vDotAlphal and Su=divU*alpha1

and pressure source term is +vDotp.

I put some photos of pressure + temperature and volume fraction in

different times :

Alpha or volume fraction
