Multifluid Simulation

Hi All,

 

Is it possible in flow simulation to conduct a multi-fluid study?

What I am interested in achieving is water flowing from a pipe - impacting with an impeller - and then flowing through an opening.

The impeller is at the end of the pipe and is rotating with the water, but also a large part of air is rotating with the impeller. This is because the impeller will not be submerged in water and at environmental pressure.....

 

SO, can Solidworks have water and air in the same simulation specifically in an impeller when it is rotating??

 

Has anybody done this? or anything similar? this is characteristic of a Pelton wheel or a cross-flow turbine....

 

Kind regards,

Brendan.
