mohamadalimirzaei1994 is on a distinguished road
it is written in a best practice document for DDPM modelling that to avoid convergence issues parcel size must be maintained sufficiently smaller than cell size in the mesh. what does this sufficiently smaller mean in your opinion? should the parcel volume be 1/10 of cell volume? 1/20? 1/100. or what?

vinerm will become famous soon enough
1/10th in terms of volume is usually taken as upper limit. This directly comes from the assumption in DPM that particle volume fraction should not be more than 10%. Though DDPM is valid up to packing limit, the parcel size should always be smaller than cell size other it will be difficult for Fluent to identify the cell that currently contains the particle. Except VOF, all multiphase models require length scale to be smaller than cell size.

PM to be used if and only if you do not want something to be shared publicly. PM is considered to be of the least priority.
