Modeling heat transfer and fluid flow in a greenhouse using evaporative cooling and fans

I am currently on a capstone project in which we are designing a greenhouse specifically for Hawaiian or tropcial climates. We currently have a proposed design but I am having trouble modeling it correctly on COMSOL. The pad system, or evaporative cooling, causes temperature change on the inflow of air, and that air is outputed through exhaust fans, or the outet. There are also fans situated in the greenhouse to induce flow.

I did tutorials such as pipe flow, evaporative flow, and basic heat transfer. I am just wondering if there are certain tutorials or suggestions to make it easier for a fairly new COMSOL user.

Thank you!
