## Abstract

This introductory chapter begins with the fundamentals of multiphase flow regimes as well as the classification of multiphase systems with phase change. The processes of phase change between solid, liquid, and vapor are discussed. A review of heat and mass transfer with emphasis in multicomponent systems and scaling are presented in this chapter including multiphase notations and concepts.
