 June 7, 2001, 22:53 moist air density #1 rafat Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I am trying to simulate a natural-draft wet cooling tower performance. I want to use a single phase simulation using Fluent 5.4 . I am trying to define the density of the moist air at the inelt. my problem is the interaction between the air and water "theoritically". I wonder if anyone has come by such a problem to help me. I mean what sort of function should I use to express the change in the air density. thanks for your help in advance.

Under 'On-line CFD calculators' you will find one called 'Air-water saturation' for the estimation of some air-water saturation data . Give it a try and look at what it says re underlying methods.
