Hi everyone,

I a new beginner of Fluent modeling. Now i am trying to do the multi-phase flow in a tank, and the phases are oil (primary phase), air and water (secondary phase), i am very interested in the water droplet behavior like coalescence and breakage when oil is agitated by air. i am thinking to use eulerian model coupled with Population balance model (PBM) to study the size distribution of water drops. i am not very familiar with cfd modeling, so any suggestion will be appreciated!

PS: the volume fraction of water is quite small (far less than 10%), so if eulerian model couple with PBM do not work, what else method can be used? Thank you in advance!
