Multiphase Simulation

Multiphase flow is a term which refers to the flow and interaction of several phases within the same system where distinct interfaces exist between the phases. The term ”phase” usually refers to the thermodynamic state of the matter: solid, liquid, or gas.

In modeling terms, a phase is defined in broader terms, and can be defined as a quantity of matter within a system that has that has its own physical properties to distinguish it from other phases within the system. For example:

Multiphase simulations are essential to analyze core processes for industrial applications:
