Hey, I am realising particles from an rotating surface in a clylindrical vessel! however when i iterate, it realises a certain amount of particles each second but in the fluent screen, it reads number tracked = etc and then incomplete = 0 ? i dont understand why it wont track them and am badly in need of assistance. Please help Thanks

check you tracking parameters first: increase the tracking step,decrease the length scale.

You can find tracking step and length scale in Define/Models/Discrete Phase.
