I am trying to simulation droplet evaporation using OpenFOAM. It needs to consider phase change, heat transfer, and compressible effect.

Which solver is suitable for these requirement? compressibleInterFoam or twoPhaseEulerFoam?

Hi Jun

Have a look at this custom solver for starters, it should cover much your requirements. It is a VOF solver, based on interFoam.
