Good Day. I have a problem that i am trying to solve and i would really appreciate some ideas.

I am new to Ansys Fluent(few months old). I have the problem attached picture. This is a vertical 15m column with two separate vertical sections meshed together with a wall in between as shown

1) Water and Air are injected into the domain at known volume rates. Here i have used "Mass" Inflow as my boundary inlet conditions

2). Water and air leaks into another column which transports vertically to outlet at 4

3) Gas is removed from a Gas cap or gas filled domain section which according to our experiment stays almost constant . This gas section we have been measuring moves 1 or 2mtr at maximum during the experiment. For (3), i have used the "Degassing" boundary outlet

4) This section, we are collecting both water and air into another tank(tank not modelled here), here in my domain i have used a "Pressure" boundary outlet

My problem:
I have created a flow domain, describing the below, the air volume from (3) is nothing compared with our experiments.

According to our experiments, we are injecting about 50,000scf/d of air at (1) and are measuring about 30,000scf/d of air at (3) while the rest goes with the water to (4).

Please does anyone have any ideas on a better method of modelling this ?

kindly go through this. This might help in deciding the multiphase model.
