How can I use this solver for incompressible fluid? Thanks a lot hoseinhd

I guess if its magnitude is large enough then it will be continuous phase (like fluidisedBed tutorial). I think putting equationOfState rhoConst; in constant/thermophysicalProperties.incompressiblePhase would solve the problem. Am I right?

Yes, in areas where the dispersed phase gets larger than the continous phase these two get blended, so e.g. water is now dispersed in air and these water droplets have the prescribed diameter.
