Hi All,

Trying to model the flow of water pushed by airflow through a narrow pipe, as in a fuel cell flow channel.

I'm having two issues. 1. In my cell zone conditions tab, the water (liquid) is not showing up. Not sure if this is an issue or not.
2. The solution is only taking seconds to solve, and I cannot really see anything I expect, such as water drops beginning to move down the channel under the force of the air movement.

I'm very new to Fluent so I'll start here. You all will likely need more help to get at what I'm asking, so I'll be around.

Thanks for your help
