How can i initialize the the injection particles once i calculate the particle tracking in DPM modeling. Please guide

Thanks

You can't track them without injecting / initializing them.
So, what do you want?

Ya i Know that. What i meant was that once i calculate particle track it gives me summary of the particle tracks that these zones have this much of particles trapperd etc. But when I press the track button again it gives me different values in summary. why is it doing like this? Do i need to initialize the injected particle and then press the particle tracking? I m really confused./ I hope i made you understand about my problem and I also hoe that you may have a solution to this...

You will not have to initilize the particles in the way you intitalize the field values.

Where do your particles start from?
What kind of injection do you use?

Thank you Saga

Actually i got my answer. I was getting different results. that was because of stochastic tracking which i had enabled for turbulence of the particles. What stochastic tracking does is that it assumes values which are different in every case thats why it was giving me difffernt values.

i was using surface injection. and particles strat from upper inlet into the cylinder.
