Smile tracing of particle with volume

czhao86 is on a distinguished road

I tried to simulate a simple geometry with width at 1um, and show that only particles with diameter less than 1um could go through it and particles with diameter larger will not.

But it seems like any sized particle can go through, which is of course wrong. I think in Fluent, it only takes care of the force on particles without considering its volume and geometry.

Could anyone help me, or have the same problem before? Does multiphase model help?

multiphase model, particle size
