same Particle Tracks for different diameter
 
Hi everybody,

I have a problem when trying to track my particles with the DPM Model. I get the same particle track for particles with diameters under 1 micrometer (for 0,5 and 0,1 micrometer). That is not possible because I am simulating a centrifuge and centrifugal force acts proportional to the diameter. As result I get a separation curve of 100%, which does not agree with my experiments. Can anybody help me, please? did I forgot something important?

Thank you

Xiana

check the min and max ranges given in display trajectories. you can have manual intervention also.
