interfactial area concentration (IAC) of the eulerian-eulerian method
 
Dear All,

I am using a mixture model of FLUENT to simulate water droplet in a gas continuous phase. I would like to use IAC to consider droplet breakup and coalescence due to turbulence and wake entrainment. However, the user's guide mentions that IAC is specific to bubbly flow. I do not know whether it is appropriate for water droplet as a discrete phase. If not, is there any other method can be used to consider the above effects.

Thanks,
Pusheng
