multicomponent, natural evaporation modelling in fluent

      Hello Everyone
      I am trying to study natural evaporative cooling in fluent.

      The system I am trying to model is made of sand/water mixture in between two layers of clay all in an enclosed fluid domain (atmosphere/air) as shown in the attached pictures.

      The major challenge here is, I am not allow to mix solid and fluid in fluent when I select evaporation/condensation, Lee model

      Considering this situation basically is this modeling in fluent advisable??

      This is my first project with ansys.

      If it's your first project I'd advise going through all of the tutorials: multiphase isn't easy and phase change especially so.  Staff are not permitted to open attachments so no idea what you've defined.

      Thank you for your reply @rwoolhou.

      I hope someone that that can view image help.
      I have gone through several tutorials. No one had used such multicomponent.

      I have been struggling with the works for months.

      I just needed expert view on this.

      Please repost the images into the thread: I am not permitted to open/download any files.  You may be able to use porous media to mimic the solids, but you'll need to judge if that's appropriate.
