Issues with turbulence modeling in isothermal VOF solvers
Under the VOF framework, the flow of the isothermal mixture belongs to the variable-density incompressible flow category. For such flows, VOF-based solvers of OpenFOAM fail to construct the correct governing equations for turbulence modeling. varRhoTurbVOF contains a set of newly designed VOF-based solvers which could use the desired governing equations for turbulence quantities.
