I have to implement a two-phase channel flow solver, starting from twoPhaseEulerFoam.

I'd like to add the same procedure of channelOodles, which adapts the pressure gradient in order to keep the mass flow rate constant.

The problem is that the velocity equation for both phases doesn't contain the pressure gradient, so I'm not sure on how I can extend the procedure to this solver. Where should I add the pressure gradient?

Thanks in advance,
Alberto Passalacqua
