Default VOF fraction in multiphaseInterFoam

mahaputra is on a distinguished road
does somebody can explain,

how fluid fractions in multiphaseInterfoam are defined ?

i success to add heat transfer equation to interFoam , compressibleLesInterFoam and bubbleFoam solvers

for example this :

volScalarField k
alpha1*k1 + alpha2*k2

volScalarField Cp
alpha1*Cp1 + alpha2*Cp2

but not for multiphaseInterFoam. i always fail. i can not use directly fluid fraction symbol (i.e alpha1 and alpha2) in this solver.

the fraction formula which defined in the multiphaseInterFoam/multiphaseMixture is not same as other interFoam family solvers.

please i really need help

that somebody can explain clearly the multiphaseMixture in multiphaseInterFoam

Hi, Nugroho, have a good day!
How about your progress on the multiphaseInterFoam? My research will also include adding heat transfer equation to it. The research topic is shown on
And now I try to use the RASModel rather than laminar, but I meet an error like follows. Any comments?
Thank you.
