i have a y - junction fitting (two inlets (1,2) and one outlet (3)). Two different fluids (with different densities and viscosities but same temperatures) let's say paint and other fluid comes from two inlets, mix and they will go through the outlet. and also laminar flow conditions. How to approach this problem to calculate the pressure losses of this junction and also loss coefficients for the two paths 1-3 and 2-3 ? would be really glad if someone helps.To the outlet of the y junction i have a pipe connected. inside the pipe there is helical static mixer to mix these two fluids perfectly. what are the things to be considered in finding the loss coefficient for this section too.

how to do the flow simulation of these components in ansys fluent. and find the loss coefficients ? i have seen the examples of mixing of identical fludis may be with different thermodynamic properties but not the one with two different fluids.
