Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone could provide a very high level explanation on the workings behind the interPhaseChangeFoam solver.

I am aware of the where the mass transfer equations for the creation and destruction of vapour come from in terms of each of the three models but I am looking for any information relating to how these are connected to the general equations being solved (volume conservation?) and the volume fraction equations.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!
