I am calculating CFBC(Circulating Fluidized Bed Combustion) problem. I modified this problem as multi component multiphase problem by using CFX Tutorial, coal combustion. Unfortunately, Because of muticomponent mutiphase condition I cannot set initial volume fraction of sand in the boiler. I did not set combustion yet. I solve flow first and move to combustion. Does anyone give me a piece of advice how to do this?

What is stopping you set the sand volume fraction initial condition?

Error #001100279 has occurred in subroutine ErrAction. Massage: The particle mass fractions have to add up to a total of one with a tolerance of 1%. The sum of the user specified values exceeds this threshold. <-This message came up independent of initial condition when particle calculatin begins.

So doesn't the error message tell you exactly what is wrong?

A good way forward is to set one phase to be initial value: Automatic so then it automatically calculates a value which makes the total volume fractions sum to 1.

I found error and fix it temporarily. I changed Discrete Partticle Diameter Distribution to specified Diameter. The error has gone. Every particle(Limestone, coal, sand)has particle size distribution and mass fraction. Maybe I put wrong Mass Fraction List or Number Fraction list. I made Mass Fraction List sum be 1 indivisually. Do we have to think all componet mass fraction(calculated one component individual mass fraction/total component mass fraction)? But I am not confident about setting Number Fraction List according to mass fraction list. I put the same fraction to make sum 1.Perhaps it caused the error, I think.
Thank you very much ghrrocks.
