Default Counting particles

Hi all,

I ve just finished a simulation of a steam drum, Eurelian-Lagrangian (to track the particles: water droplets with a certain diameter distribution).

I did it steady state and it is fairly converged. To simulate the drain in the walls, the restitution coefficiente for all the walls is zero.

My question now is: I want to "see" which particles make it to the outlet. I would like to get a graph, or a table, with all the particles (around 500 from the 10.000 in the inlet) which didnīt hit any wall (and, consequently, left the system by the steam outlet). Would be nice to have its characteristics (diameter, traveling time, etc) as well.

Is it possible? how?

Thanks in advance
