Inconsistency in DPM concentrationDear all,
I'm using the DPM model of FLUENT, with the following parameters : * unsteady * two-way coupling (but without resolving the flow equations. Thus, im only resolving the particles motion equation in a one way coupling approach) * inert particles (no mass, no heat, transfers) In this context, I was monitoring the DPM_CONCENTRATION average on a surface, and I saw some inconsistencies. Thus, I did a small test, by computing the total mass of particles in my domain (sum over all the cells of DPM_CONCENTRATION*CELL_VOLUME), and I get the following results : at injection : mtot = 5.44e-10 kg after 1s : mtot = 5.29e-10 kg after 3s : mtot = 4.72e-10 kg after 5s : mtot = 5.0e-10 kg What is happening ??? Ok there can be some numerical diffenrences, but not so much! There are no particles escaping (always the same number as initially), and I don't have any mass transfer. So, what did I miss ? Thanks a lot for your help ! Best, Mat |

[QUOTE=Mat_fr;392284]Dear all,
