Predicting Spray Nozzle Performance

My company currently uses SolidWorks. We are looking at improving the jet performance (cohesive jet over longer throw distances) of our spray heads by using more than just physical prototypes.

In talking with our VAR, they informed us Floworks is capable of modeling the liquid flow through the device, but not once it enters the atmosphere. In general terms, is there a way to predict how cohesive a jet will be if we know the fluid's flow characteristics immediately before it enters the atmosphere?
