Post tank drainage on fluent

Suppose I have a tank which is half full of water initially with one exit at bottom surface and one inlet on upper surface . Tank is kept in atmosphere and now I have to analyse the system on fluent . Will I have to use multiphase model??
If yes why and if no then why not?
I am very much confused as my domain inside tank I have taken it as water but it is not totally filled with water. Will it automatically assume vaccum in rest of space or I have to mention.
Please help

It will not initialize a vacuum, when you do the initialization the whole domain will be filled. For your case I suggest VOF multiphase method.

I urgently need some examples of vof model . I cant get it on net. Can you please tell me where will i get some tutorials or examples .
If you have something then please mail me piyusharas.iitkgp@gmail.com

I am working on a multiphase VOF model
It is kind of tank drainage with one inlet and 6 outlets.
I am done with everything till Adapt-> Region and Solution Initialization -> Patch .
This to things I skipped and after running I am getting error as

Global courant number is greater than 250.00 The
velocity field is probably diverging. Please check the solution
and reduce the time-step if necessary.

What should I do .Please help.
here is how my model look

is the domain initially completely filled with water? is the error happening right away or after some time? what is your timestep?

Sorry the screenshot I have given is a little wrong as I am talking about steady state so now I am working on steady instead of transient.
I am working on both low and high flow rates but in both flow rate is not that much that it can fill the complete fluid domain with water i.e. air is also present in steady condition.

so you do or don't initialize the air with a patch initialization? sorry i didn't understand your meaning

Actually I have not worked on multiphase earlier that's why i might have left some steps.
Yes I have done nothing like initializing patch of air.
please tell me some basic steps of how to setup my model in fluent.

Need help .


Thank You
