Multiphase Convective Heat Transfer

Good night, my friends,

I would like to know how do I perform a multiphase convective heat transfer simulation ?. It’s possible?. Grateful for everything. @roy_g, @vgon_alves, @jousefm.

I would like to perform a simulation where I have a reactor with walls of different temperatures and inside I have water and air.

You may be able to do this using the Conjugate Heat Transfer. Does the air sit on top of the water with a non changing interface? If this is the case you will be fine with Conjugate Heat Transfer. If you want to stir the water and air together or pass air bubbles through the water then this wont be possible as the solver can not model an evolving interface between the fluids in this solver (as far as I am aware).
