Default Particle Tracking
Posts: n/a

can you tell me why when we run the discrete phase model, after many iterations when the number of incomplete particles is zero, after a few more iterations, the number of incomplete particles usually rises a few and goes back down?! isnt it supposed to have the job completely finished? then why again incomplete particles show up?

I also need to replace the recirculation and other zones with Reactor Networks for which I need things like mass flow rate and residence time. I need to isolate these regions for this. Can you please help me on how to get the mass flow rate into and out of a zone (like a recirculation zone) and how to get the residence time?

Thank you,
