A model of boiling dilute emulsions is developed based on the Eulerian multiphase model. The model contains three phases, corresponding to the continuous component and droplets and bubbles of the suspended component. Closure equations are developed for the effective properties of each phase, for boiling and condensation rates for the droplets and bubbles of the dispersed component, and for momentum and heat transfer between phases. A finite volume numerical model of the multiphase model is developed.
