particle track in cavitation
 
I want track particles (post processing) in a model involving cavitation. The particles stop at a location where there is a phase change. How to cope this issue? I want to track throughout the flow passage.

Thanks

Re: particle track in cavitation
 
The Discrete Phase Model in fluent only allows particles to be tracked in the primary phase of a multiphase simulation. This is why the trajectories abort at the second phase. I don't know any workaround for this. Maybe try using a Eulerian granular phase instead of DPM.

Thanks cadaei. let me know if there is any trick to do this.

Thanks
