In this work we solve the Navier–Stokes–Korteweg (NSK) equations to simulate a two-phase fluid with phase change. We use these equations on a diffuse interface approach, where the properties of the fluid vary continuously across the interface that separates the different phases. The model is able to describe the behavior of both phases with the same set of equations, and it is also able to handle problems with great changes in the topology of the problem. However, high-order derivatives are present in NSK equations, which is a difficulty for the design of a numerical method to solve the problem. Here, we propose the use of a high-order Finite Volume method with Moving Least Squares approximations to handle high-order derivatives and solve the NSK equations. Moreover, a new methodology to obtain accurate equations of state is presented. In this method, we use any accurate equation of state for the pure phases. Under the saturation curve, a B-spline reconstruction fulfilling a given set of thermodynamic criteria is performed. The new EOS can be used for computations using diffuse interface modeling. Several numerical examples to show the accuracy of the new approach are presented.
