Dear all,
I'm trying to understand why the constant pre multiplier for Rosin Rammler distribution function is calculated as below:
scalar sMax = 0;
label n = d_.size();
for (label i=0; i<n; i++)
scalar s = exp(-1.0);
for (label j=0; j<n; j++)
if (i!=j)
scalar xx = pow(d_[j]/d_[i], n_[j]);
scalar y = xx*exp(-xx);
s += y;

sMax = max(sMax, s);

for (label i=0; i<n; i++)
ls_[i] /= sMax;

In the case of a unitInjector (n=1), ls_[0]=d/exp(-1). What does it mean by mean diameter/ exp(-1)?
