Water Surface Evaporation

I am trying to simulation for water surface evaporation.
For this simulation in fluent in ANSYS 15, I set the materials, water, vapour, and air.

After I checked the evaporation tutorial in fluent, I set my 2D model.
Additionally, for constant height of water, I used VOF model, Open Channel Flow and Open Channel Wave BC.

Water inlet velocity = 1.2 m/s
Air inlet velocity = 5 m/s

Water Height = 5 m
The Length of model = 20 m

Water Temperature = 310.15 K
Air Temperature = 304.75 K
Water Evaporation Temperature = 302.75 K

I checked the water - vapour mass interaction, evaporation-condensation model.
The result was all water was evaporated by water evaporation temperature.
However, I want to simulate the only evaporation of water surface.

Perhaps, you guys have tried this similar simulation for surface evaporation ?
If yes, please tell me how to simulate it.

Also, how can I create UDF file for evaporation model at specific static pressure.

Hi sunggun, could you find a way to perform surface evaporation below saturation temperature? I am also stuck in a similar situation and would be grateful if you can shed some light into it.

No way
I can not find the way.

"For vaporization which is evaporation below saturation temperature you require the presence of other component and the mass transfer is concentration or partial pressure driven." This is what I found from Ansys students community discussion.
