Detailed Description

template<class BasePhaseSystem>
class Foam::ThermalPhaseChangePhaseSystem< BasePhaseSystem >

Class to provide interfacial heat and mass transfer between a number of phases according the interfacial temperature approximated by the saturation temperature.

Based on the implementation described in:

    Peltola, J., P├Ąttikangas, T., Bainbridge, W., Lehnigk, R., Schlegel, F.
    (2019).
    On Development and validation of subcooled nucleate boiling models for
    OpenFOAM Foundation Release.
    NURETH-18 Conference Proceedings, Portland, Oregon, United States, 2019.

The present implementation includes simplified support for non-volatile components in addition to a single volatile component in order to account compressibility effects when non-volatile gas bubbles of non-volatile gas filled pressure reservoirs are present.

The phase change mass transfer calculation is still only dependent on the interfacial temperature estimate and interfacial heat transfer models. The mass diffusion effects in presence of non-volatile components at the interface are neglected.
