Hi, Foamers!
I'm studying on interPhaseChangeFoam and trying to modify the source term in alphaEqn. By referring to some documents (, each term solved in MULES was clarified except to vDotcAlphal.

(divU*alpha1 + vDotcAlphal)(),

doesn't this code solve the dizcretized equation of transport equation (2,26)?

If so, integrated al * av * (rho_vdot/rho_v - rho_ldot/rho_l) seems to be equal to vDotcAlphal.

Please your advice.
