Dear Foamers:
I have some questions following hope to get your help.
Here are a part of code in "thermophysicalProperties" file of cht*Foam:

             Sf                       0;
             Hf                       0;
I'm confused about the meaning of the keywords "Sf" and "Hf". The meaning of "Hf" in user's guide[Chapter 7.1.3] is "a heat of fusion". But there is no explanation about "Sf" in user's guide.
If there is no phase change of materials in my case, I reckon the value of "Hf" has no influence on my result, am I right?

Any replies will be great appreciated!
Best Wishes!
