How to apply Eulerian-Eulerian model in FLUENT

I want to release particles with the release rate of 200 cfu/min by applying Eulerian-Eulerian model from a surface!
I search for it throw the internet and Fluent manual, but I can not find anything helpful in this area. Do anybody know any text or manual which I can use to setup this method?

Have you explored Langrangian DPM? Why insisting on Eulerian model?

Because I am interesting to particle concentration of particles in some certain areas and not trajectory of the particles. As I know this will achieved by Eulerian-Eulerian model.

As far as I know, in Eulerian multiphase model you need to patch your particles in a specified zone, define a zone for your particles and patch it in initialization. If the particles concentration is lower than 12%, I suggest mixture model. It's somehow easier than Eulerian model to handle.

Do you have any tutorial for applying mixture model? In this model can I release particle from a surface and measure the particle concentration in another part of geometry?
