Petroleum product spill evaporation

Which program is more suitable for simulating evaporation of accidental spills of petroleum products (gasoline, diesel, kerosene): Fluent or CFX?
Are there any tutorials or publications available on the subject?

Thank you.

"Are there any tutorials or publications available on the subject?"

I don't think this forum is meant for "lazy" people and neither we can entertain do-for-me attitude. For sure, google has all the publications on this subject.

Basically, there is "no-much" difference between CFX and fluent in terms of fundamental principle of fluid flow. As for tutorials, both CFX and Fluent has a well-documented information and therefore suggest that you read it yourself. By the way, the User Manual of each of the code which include its theory is well-written such that my nephew in elementary school can read it and understand it too. The issue is, No one wants to read it!

Best of luck!
