pneumatic conveying system simulation in fluent

I need some help. I need to run a simulation from a pneumatic conveying system in fluent, but i have some questions, what boundary conditions should i use?, is possible to use more than one boundary condition in the air inlet? i`m working whit a 2d planar model, can it make errors?

thank you

pneumatic conveying materials
Hi dear.

I am student in master level in mechanical engineering from IRAN. I want to simulate " design of pneumatic conveying materials in Horizontal pipe by Fluent". This is my Final project and in next level I want to make that and compare all result.

I try to simulate but unfortunately I couldn't. Could you please guide me for design ( step by step in Fluent)!!!?

with best wishes

Do you know how to simulate such flow but without particles -just air-?

In first thank you that you answer me .
I have two phase Gas and Solid. I could simulate just air but for simulate other phase (Solid) I couldn't.If it possible I want know all step of simulation or in a complete Example.

all step for example :
1-Difine Material > ...

You need to use discrete phase model and create injection
