Why is it that the particle-tracking solvers such as sprayFoam don't use/require the void fraction? When a liquid droplet is sprayed in to a vapor cell, how is the change in cell pressure captured by the code? It seems that if the code still thinks the entire cell is occupied by vapor, the results will not be correct.
