Hi all, I need to introduce solid particles, which freely suspend in air. Can I use DPM? If so, then how to introduce particles using DPM?

Thankyou, -kris

do u want to inject particles, so that they mix with contiuous phase and move on? If so then u can use DPM model, there are many injection types available in fluent, go through the fluent user guide to know how to that.


do u want to suspend particles at some location in the domain?

If so the use multiphase model & add a patch in the domain with the particle (material) u want. go through the user guide to know & use those options

Hi ,
I am facing problem in Discrete phase modelling with suspended particles in a closed vessel of fluid.The suspended particles in the fluid is to be heated in a closed vessel at a fixed volume concentration.But how to make the particle suspended before the heating is done at a fixed concentration, without any inlet and outlet flow?

Suggestion from ur side would be of great help..
