The interface boundary is used when different (non-conformal) cell zones are fused into one big domain. The interface is where they meet.

Why are you using an interface? Do you have multiple cell zones fused in TGrid?

You can use tracers by defining an injection plane in the Define menu, no need to mess with boundary conditions.

In 'Define --> Injections' you define where the tracers originate, a single particle, a surface, etc and you can give the particles properties if needed.

Next step: in 'Define --> Models --> Discrete Phase' you select the number of steps and the step length.

Finally: select 'Display --> Particle Tracks' to display the tracers.
