I have faced a problem which I'm not sure wether the way I'm trying to model it is right or not.
I should say, as it is part of something bigger and I have not enough information about what really happens the modeling just got complicated.

here is an image of geometry.
as the hot gas comes form gas inlet in 700 K and 2.13 MPa, water comes from water inlets in 300 k and pressure of 35 Mpa.

the experiments shows that in there should be an acceptable evaporation. but my modelling does not.

this is my modeling:
pressure based-steady

multiphase model : mixture-3 phase
viscous model : k-epsilon Realizable
energy eq : On

materials: air,water liquid,water vapor
air: ideal gas
water liquid and vapor: default

primery phase: air
secondary phase: second=water liquid , third=water vapor
interaction: mass-> Mechanisem:evaporation-condensation-> saturation temperature= piecewise-linear- 2 point


gas inlet: pressure inlet
water inlet: pressure inlet
outlet: pressure outlet

presure-velocity coupling: SIMPLE
under relaxation factors are grater than 0.1 and smaller than 0.2
spatial discritizations are all first order.
I should say I have changed under relaxation factors or spatial discretization methods and also pressure velocity coupling methods but nothing have changed significantly.

I doubt more about my 1-multiphase model 2-steady 3-the phenomena which water comes out. because I don't know when the water comes out it sprayed or not. the liquid water phase in results is a simple continuous trace.but it should not be like this I think...
I don't know really. can anybody help me?

anything comes to your mind will be appreciated.
thanks. Ali
