Flow boiling of hydrocarbon in a small channel

      I have simulated the flow boiling of liquid hydrocarbon in a small channel. The axial symmetry was used and VOF method with phase change method is used. The boiling is induced by temperature boundary.

      The results are good, but i want to know one thing

      How the heat flux is calculated in case of two phase flow. When the two liquid and vapor are separated by a liquid-vapor interface.

      How the heat flux is calculated in this case.

      I need very urgent help in this matter please.

      The heat transfer is covered in the documentation, however, remember that VOF has a single energy equation solved for both phases.
