 February 24, 2010, 19:08 Nozzle and droplets #1 New Member   Anonymous Join Date: Feb 2010 Posts: 2 Rep Power: 0 Hello, i am a newcomer in this forum and also just recently studied FLUENT, so i think i am going to need a lot of help from the good people of this forums My project is quite simple, where a nozzle with pressure of 10 bars eject water mist to a room of 2 x 1 m with 1 atm pressure. My problem is how do you make the water of continuous phase inside a nozzle disperse and become droplets at the nozzle's exit. Also i was hoping to get a wide range of water mist ejected into the room, do i need to change the geometry of the nozzle? Thanks for the attention and i am looking forward to your answers.

Bugra

I've been reading some manuals and some of them points out at DPM, however i have never used it before. Also i have been wondering if i put the tip of the nozzle inside of the room, will that make any difference? because in my case, the tip of the nozzle is at the exact boundary of the room.
