How to find the number of particles trapped

Dear Friends,

I am working on cyclone seperator. wants to know how to find the number of particles trapped in the chamber.

As I can find the number of particles from Report>DPM>Summary....

Re: How to find the number of particles trapped

hi, you can create a surface on the bottom of your cyclone and you put the DPM boundary condition at that face as trap. Then when you will inject your particule you will get a report. Hope it helps

Re: How to find the number of particles trapped

yes, thats what i have done..... I didt get what report are u talking........ are u talking of

Report > Discrete Phase > Sample.... but in my case its not writing the report... 1. about this one do we have to make it before intertate 2. or we can generate it after all the calculations done...

any how please let me know how to generate I will be Thankfull to you.

Re: How to find the number of particles trapped

i mean when you inject your particule (iterate), your console should show : DPM iteration and then number of particles tracked , traped , aborted, escaped, incomplete. Thats what i was speaking about

Re: How to find the number of particles trapped

yes Jack,

Thanks for taking interset in my problem. Yes, it shows while interating injected parclels, escaped, trapped,.....and other information. so, u mean thats u should use the console, injected and escaped ratios..........

okay, if thats the thing... in Report > Discrete Phase > Summary... we get the summary of the injections, in that it shows number of parcels, and then NUMBER OF PARTICLES... so, please clear me this thing please....

and for my Original question u shold suggest me to use the console report.

If u are in India, please give me a mobile number or ur any chat id....

Thanks & Regards, Prashant 99020 65608
