stop generation of mass particle
Hi dears.
I want to simulate mass particle with FLOW-3D. I a defined new source in particle menu and specified location of source, generation rate and initial particle velocity. The model stopped particle generation when the number of particle reach to 10,000 while I want to particle produce until the end time.
I dont know where is the modelling problem:confused:
Thank you

The maximum number of particles allowed in a simulation is an input parameter, NPMAX, in the PARTS namelist. The default value is 10,000. Keep in mind that a million particles would tax the memory and CPU significantly, so don't go wild generating too many particle there!
