abraham91 is on a distinguished road

Currently, I am doing Fluent simulation regarding to the two phase separation at tee pipe. Below are my input parameters

air velocity = 27.432 m/s
water velocity = 0.02339 m/s
volume fraction of water = 0.00085
flow rate weighing at side arm = 0.3
flow rate weighing at run arm = 0.7

In the result, the % of gas going into the side arm is approximately accurate but the % of liquid going into the side arm is inaccurate and its value is the same as % of gas going into side arm. Same problem is observed when I am trying to manipulate the flow rate weighing of both side and run arm. Maybe the amount of water is too small.

Any idea on this problem ??? thanks in advance
