Dear all,

I am trying to implement a Lagrangian model. All my test cases run fine with and without the particle tracking but I have the problem that all the particle track files that I produced so far had no data in it. Does anybody have an idea what causes this problem?

Would be very happy about some input!

Are your particles actually going somewhere? Is the time scale long enough for them to move?

I have been running a steady state simulation which somehow does not work out! It appears to me that only once the amount of particles that I specified are injected since the partilce tracks were only recorded when I stopped the simulation after a certain iteration step during the calculation (after 40 steps). If the simulation runs longer than 40 iteration steps, the track file contains no data.

Thats why I changed my steady state analysis to transient. Right now I am wainting for the results
