Hi foamers

I am very new to this openfoam especially on the Lagrangian particle flow front.

As i want to simulate the dust particles which is removed buy a dust sucker device,

please i want to know how to fill the required number of particles in the given mesh ex like for a given area and what are steps to follow for this implementation.

is so please let me know how to map the particles for any given geometry

thanking you in advance

Hi theja,
Please have a look in the particle injection models. You have the possibility of manual injection as well as to choose one of the injection models.

Hi theja,
Then it is very simple, manual inject the particles via manual injection, there you need to give the particle positions. you may have a look of the hooper emptying case.
