hello ...

I generated a mesh with 37000000 cells. when I run the case, one error message comes out,

particle error
number of particles exceeds maximun (set by npmax)- 10001
at source = 1- no more source particles can be generated
clearly, in my case the number of particles exceeds maximun (npmax).

But, I have no idea about npmax. anyone know how to set the npmax..THX

best wishes

Model setup->Physics->Particles->Maximum allowed number of particles

or edit the prepin and add NPMAX to the PARTS namelist
