Dust is on a distinguished road
Hi everyone!

Here is my question: I am right now setting up the injection of particles. In the file kinematicCloudProperty under MPPICFoam:

type patchInjection;
parcelBasisType fixed;
patchName inlet;
U0 (0.005020 0 0);
nParticle 1;
parcelsPerSecond 1;

it defines how many parcels that injection injects per second (here is 1/s), and I am wondering is that possible to inject parcels discontinuously? In other words, say you want to inject 1 parcel per 2 seconds, or something like that instead of every single second.

Thank you for your time.
