Material library does not contain steam for compressible analysis

I am not able to find Steam as a fluid material in compressible flow simulation. Please let me know how to work it out.


Hi there,
SimScale provides some commonly used materials like Air, Water, etc by default. Default materials include both solids and fluids according to the analysis type selected. To define a specific material in the simulation, pick an existing material and modify the properties according to your case, as you can see below:
