Hello there,

I am new to the forum and I am new to particle tracking simulations.

I am doing a very simple calculation with a conv-div nozzle. I am injecting aluminium particles inside the fluid stream (that is air). What I am trying to do is to explore the PPCM (Particle-particle contact model). This model takes into account the contact between two particles moved by the flow.

My question now is: since to use this model the simulation has to be transient, does anyone no if i can (and if yes, how I can) look at the particles to see if they come in contact and how they react to the contact? I mean, I would really like to visualize "a movie" with the particles.

Thanks in advance

This is done in the tutorials at least once. I believe the butterfly valve tutorial does it. It's very simple to do.
