liquid particle track and flow rate
In Inject option of Fluent, the flow rate of the liquid seems not to affect the particle motion pattern. Only the size of the particle diameter changes the particle track pattern.

Is this true or should more things be taken care of in Inject menu?

Thanks in advance.

Re: liquid particle track and flow rate
Check that 'Interaction with particle phase' is 'ON' or 'OFF'. If, 'OFF', flow rate of particle can not affect the trajectory because the assumption is that particle does not change the flow field. In this case(OFF), of course, particle trajectory is dependent of the particle diameter.
