Plot particles w. correct size?
Hi. I'm doing some lagrangian particle tracking calculations with a particle distribution variying from 1 my to 100 my. While post processing I would like to plot the particles with the proper size (or multiplied by a constant), so small particles appear small and large particles appear large i.e a function of the diameter. At the moment all particles have the same size. Is it possible to do that with CFX-10 POST?

Re: Plot particles w. correct size?
I had also tried same thing few weeks back, but in vain. You can not plot the actual particle size that you have used for analysis. The only thing can be done to differentiate the particle size is to use different plot-sizes in the postprocessing. This postprocessing jugglery can work only upto some extent.
