Hello!

I'm starting to use Fluent and I would like to simulate the terminal velocity of a particle but I don't know how to insert a particle in a flow. The goal is to compare the results to the Stokes' equation for terminal velocity. Any help would be much appreciated.

So, I was able to create a simulation. But my data do not match the literature available (I'm using Mordant work as reference: http://perso.ens-lyon.fr/jean-franco...PJB_18_343.pdf).

Do anyone have any tips for this case?
