DPM particle tracks - speed up?
 
Hi Guys

I'm using the DPM model to make particle tracks of essentially near mass-less particles. I'm finding that for my cases (3D reactor, isothermal flow, 30m long 5x5m Xsect) that displaying the particle tracks takes about 2-3hr on my PIII workstation. This seems a very long time, is there a way to speed it up????

I'm using max-steps of 20000 and length scale of 10 in the DPM model panel. Does anybody know what these do - they aren't explained very well in the manual?

Greg
