hi every body

i want to simulate the flow boiling in vertical channel, the left and right of this channel is under constant heat flux,what pressure boundary condition is suitable for this case, and then how can i calculate the total pressure loss in this simulation. the geometry of this channel is:

the Experimental test of this case that i want to simulate it:
(Reference of this picture:Pressure drop and void fraction during flow boiling in rectangular minichannels in weightlessness,D. Brutin a,, V.S. Ajaev b, L. Tadrist)

any help, hint and comment is appreciated

I am also trying to simulate flow boiling case in OpenFOAM, can you please tell me which solver you are using.

Thank you
