Hi Callum,

are you sure you haven’t changed something about the case setup? When I download, unpack and compile OLB1.7 the waterAirflatInterface2d case works for me. This model uses an empirical Peng-Robinson equation of state with Huron-Vidal mixing rules, which will explain the parameters that you are wondering about.
About adding inlet and outlet boundary conditions: This model is designed to show how well this multi-component pseudo-potential can recreate thermodynamic equilibrium for the multi-component mixture. This model will need more specific implementation at least when it comes to the outflow/pressure boundary condition, as there won’t be a constant pressure at the outflow for such a multi-phase fluid because of surface tension effects.

I hope this can clarify your questions.
