Three phase problem in Trickle bed

I've tried to model a Trickle Bed reactor by both options 1) Three phase eulerian 2) 2 phase eulerian with porous media. Both simulations had convergence problem.
Problem for Gas & liquid phase is how to define the bubble dia considering gas is continuous phase.
For the 3 phase case, I patched solid vol fraction i.e. (1 - bed voidage ) in the solution domain, but to my surprise, solid volume fraction keeps on changing and eventually get replaced by the liquid & gas which is not correct.
Anybody has any clue?
Response will be appreciated.
