Ansys and underwater acoustics

I'm trying to perform a simulation using underwater acoustics. The intention is to have a sphere made of fluid elements (FLUID29), air, with a surrounding fluid of water (FLUID29) and then an infinite elements of water (FLUID129). I want to be able to put a plane wave source of sound located at some point within the infinite elements. The problem I would like to simulate is a multiple scattering problem.

Is this possible to do? I've been able to apply the source at a surrounding fluid of water (FLUID29), but not a good distance away in the infinite element space. If not, could you please recommend me a software package which may work better to suit my needs?

Thank you!

Oh yeah, I'm using the command method of Ansys and Ansys 12.0 without the Workbench in case that helps.
