twoPhaseEulerFoam – phaseProperties



In solving two-phase flow problems, we can use a variety of simulation techniques, such as Eulerian-Eulerian, Eulerian-Lagrangian methods, Volume of Fluid (VOF) method and homogeneous equilibrium model (HEM).

In this page, I will organize information on the physical models available in twoPhaseEulerFoam, an Eulerian-Eulerian solver available in OpenFOAM.

I will add descriptions of each model.
