CFX vs CFD for multiphase+particle
I want to simulate the behaviour of the water intake to a hydroelectric plant.
It's a multiphase flow with 2 continuous fluid (air and water) and free surface model.
So far I've used CFX, no pb.

But now I want to inject sand and do particle tracking.
I got an error message in CFX because multiphase flow together with particle tracking is not supported... :mad:

So should I switch to CFD ? Will it be feasible and not too difficult (I'm a beginner on Ansys !).
or can I stay in CFX ? Then I guess I should give up particle transport morphology for sand.....

If some expert could help me make the right choice, that would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Sure. Multiphase flow, free surface with discrete phase.
