water droplets - help

I am trying to simulate water droplets of size 100microns flowing along with the air velocity inside a sinusoidal shaped rectangular chamber vertically placed. In CFX11, I chosed air as the continous fluid and water as the dispersed fluid. Physically, the droplets are trapped during the course of the travel and it breaks and flows back. Could you please guide me properly in simulating this one as this is first problem on two component flow for me.

regards rns

This may well be better modelled as a particle tracking lagrangian model rather than Eularian. You will definitely need particle tracking if the particles hit the walls and therefore exit the flow.
