Particle Tracking
I am using CFX to model the flow on a small centrifugal pump to be used as a heart assist device.

I need to obtain data from particle tracking such as velocities and ,more importantly, residence time. I have been trying to use the option create Particle track on CFX post but I am not sure which input file I need to use when using this option. I have little experience using CFX and so far I have not found many hints on the tutorials. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Re: Particle Tracking
1. Select File---export; 2. Select particle location as the name of your particle tracking result. Choose the parameters you want to export; 3. Process the .csv data file with Excell or other tools.
