I am simulating food and/or waste in a cyclone with air. I am using DPM modeling method to solve the discrete phase particles. I only have the density of all the waste batch coming in the cyclone. As food waste has numerous particles of various sizes and shapes.So i cannot get them.

Could anyone give me some suggestions as to how can I assume the particle size (diameters) in this case and how many diameters (for Rosin rammler) I should take and what should be the shape factor for drag of non spherical particles. Or I can use any other apporoach for solving this?

Your valuable suggestions would really be helpful. Thank you
