Hi Openfoamers!

I want to launch an example from tutorial named cyclone with the solver MPPICFoam.
Unfortunately, when I launch the example on Paraview, I cannot see the lagrangian particles because it is impossible to reach them on the property display.

Anybody knows how to display the particles?

Hi
After running the case and opening paraview:
1- tick the box "skip zero time"
2- in the mesh parts, tick the last one "kinematicCloud - lagranian" and untick "internalMesh".
3- click on apply and enjoy particles

Hi!

Thank you very much.

I have already found the problem. I have run my case after between t=0 and 0.1s. But, the SOI (start of injection) that I found in kinematicCloudProperties file begin at 1s. That is why lagrangianCloud is not displayed.

Now, I have launched the solving up to 4s and I can display the particles.

Hi OpenFoamers.

I ran DPM simulation of the Goldschmidt fluidised bed and my particle visualization the particles are very small (check my attached file):



I want visualize it like this:

1) Is it posible visualize like that?
2) How?
3) I do not have the Langranian Field alpha, how can I put it on my results?

I hope someone can help with that.

Hi AndoniBM!

How long lasts your simulation?

Do you use Paraview? Have you change the display parameters on ParaView?
