Can anyone tell me how to track massless particles during a transient simulation. There are so many options in the multi-phase particle tracking tab, i'm unsure where to start. Many thanks.

Set up Lagrangian Particle Tracking, and only apply one way coupling.

you want v_particle = v_fluid, so just make a very large drag coefficient.
