Solver for 2 incompressible, isothermal immiscible fluids with phase-change (e.g. cavitation). Uses a VOF (volume of fluid) phase-fraction based interface capturing approach, with optional mesh motion and mesh topology changes including adaptive re-meshing.

The momentum and other fluid properties are of the "mixture" and a single momentum equation is solved.

The set of phase-change models provided are designed to simulate cavitation but other mechanisms of phase-change are supported within this solver framework.

Turbulence modelling is generic, i.e. laminar, RAS or LES may be selected.
