recently, i have been using CFX to simulate spray and atomization. But the results are not good.
I have tried to solve the problem, but it do not work. What should i do ,i am a little down

biggest problem is to describe size and dispersion of drops (just after nozzle), as you can't measure it. are you sure, you've regarded all these issues? If so, which kind of mesh and setup do you use?

Yes, this is a tough flow to model. Even tougher to answer with such a vague question.
Have you looked at the FAQ: http://www.cfdonline.com/Wiki/Ansys..._inaccurate.3F

I use lagrangian and Eluer method to simulate spray and atomization.
Preussreswirl atomizer spray into the static ambient environment. pressure difference ,cone angle ,mass flow is supplied. LISA model for the primary brekup and TAB for the second breakup model. But the result is not good. The second breakup seems does not take place, the particle diameter does not change along the spray direction. In fluent ,it use dynamic law as the drag law. In CFX,that law is not available.

To get something like a multiphase spray model accurate you should expect to require to do extensive verification, validation, comparison to experimental results, and checking of all the important physics one bit at a time before combining it to a single model which is hopefully accurate.
It is unlikely you will somebody to indentify a problem and then everything works.
