Evaporative cooling
 
hi everyone,
I am trying to model an airfoil in a multiphase flow, where water droplets entrapped in the air impinge the surface and can be evaporated if the surface temperature is high enough. Does anyone know if this is possible to do in CFX?
I have completed alot of simulations, heating the airfoil skin from the inside, in a dry air atmosphere, but now am trying to incorporate water droplets about 45 microns in diameter. When I introduce a euler-euler multiphase flow simulation, the water does not impinge and/or evaporate on the surface.

Anyone have any suggestions on the best way to go about doing this in CFX?

Thanks!
Ryan
