OPFO is on a distinguished road
I am a relative OpenFOAM newbie using the icoReactingMultiphaseInterFoam solver on OpenFOAM-v1912.

I have 3 phases (solid, liquid, gas) in my system, but I am not convinced the phases are interacting properly. From looking at multiphaseSystem.H, phaseSystem.H, and phasePair.H, it looks like phases 1 and 2 are identified as pairs and then stored in a key, then continues until all phases have been paired and stored in the key. Could anyone provide a quick explanation of how OpenFOAM handles a 3 phase system?

Can I print out these phase pairs at runtime using "Info<< ..." ? If so, does anyone have the correct code to do that?
