Particle reaction to flow acceleration

Hi, I would like to simulate steel shot (as in a shot peening application) being accelerated by air through various nozzle geometries. However, when I run a particle study it appears that the shot simply moves at the same speed as the air flow. Whereas one would expect the shot to lag the flow velocity during acceleration. Is this a limitation of Flow Simulation or am I missing something in the model setup?
