I thought the mixture multiphase modell is not as accurate but much more stable.nWhich equations does the Volume fraction explicitly activate, I don't get it completely from the Theory Guide?.Thx for any help!n

Instead of doing this, why don't you start with the Multiphase but just have 1 phase inside your domain. This will be essentially similar to a model without multiphase. nDo you see convergence issue for this kind of setup as well? The interpolation for this will make more sense. Although it is difficult to remark without understanding the model and steps in more details.nThe Mixture multiphase averages the properties in cells based on the volume fractions of the phases present. I am not sure if the initial interpolation without any volume fraction evolution causes this.nThe Euler-Euler model on the other hand has a separate set of governing equations for each phase. Due to the initially interpolated data, it might be that is does not fail immediately. But have you checked if the results make sense or not?.Regards,nSuryan
