Multiphase Model Grayed out/Unavailable

      Background:

      Trying to simulate gas entering system, changing phase, and potentially leaving/staying. 


      Model comprised of 5 sections:


         - Inlet pipe


         - Outlet pipe


         - Copper Condenser


         - Steel Body


         - Fluid Domain


      Geometry was sent from Solidworks, had to break into surfaces in spaceclaim and reorganize them into the correct solids. From there meshing went well and am now onto setup.


       


      Problem:


      When I get to setting up my Models, under multiphase, the only option I have to select is "Wet Stream" when I believe I need to have Volume of Fluid active to account for phase changes.

      You probably want Eulerian over VOF, and it should be active. What other models/options have you got switched on?

      I completely reset the setup tab and it is now available. Not sure what happened there, I had energy on as well.


       


      thanks

      No idea, it'll be something that switched on the Wet Steam model.
