Default Multiphase flow!

Hey, I'm doing a study on cavitation around a propeller using fluent and I'm trying to use a multiphase flow (water liquid and water vapor). I checked fluent's tutorials about cavitation and they said that I should have two inlets (Inlet 1 as liquid and Inlet 2 as vapor) but in Gambit when I defined Inlet 1 and Inlet 2 on the same inlet face boundary, fluent wasn't able to see both inlets and it shows only 1 inlet... what should I do to define a multiphase flow??

Please help!

Hi!

I don't think you have to define liquid and vapor inlet for cavitation simulation... Cavitation in Fluent can be a problem but in latest versions it work fine if you know a few tricks. I did most of simulations in Fluent 6.1 and unsteady. If you want some papers where I described what I did you can send me an e-mail. There was also a article about my work in Fluent-News (fall 2004 issue - I'm not sure).
