Hi all

I am running particle tracking using the DPM model. I am using steady state particle tracking (the 'Interaction with continuous phase' and 'Unsteady Particle Tracking') option are turned off. However, when I track particles this way, the Report->Discrete Phase->Summary option is turned off. It is turned on when I turn on the 'Unsteady Particle Tracking' option but I don't want to use this option. How else do I get the total mass of particles entering my domain? I'm using a R-R log distribution.

Thanks

Prashanth

Turn on the 'Interaction with continuous phase'.
(Did you set the mass flow rate of particles [kg/s]?)
