...spanning over partition


Dear everbody,
thanks for all the support.

I am doing an unsteady DPM-Analysis of emboli inside an aterial tree model.
For comparison of inert and massless particles I would like to do two calculations and release particles at the same injection locations.


Therefore I created a first injection with the following properties:
- Injection type: Surface, Number of streams: 10, inject using face normal, Randomize starting points
- Particle type: Inert, uniform diameter (2e-04 m) Particle in parcel: 1.


After initializing I was able to list the injection-properties in the console (see below). I copy-pasted them into a newly created ".inj" file, which I want to use for the massless particles (see attachment).

Then I created a massless particle (ml_injection) and read the .inj-file. When i am now trying to list the second particle in the console I recieve this message:

Injection ml_injection: 6 particles lost outside the domain while spanning over partitions.

Particle streams from ml_injection:
STREAM ...........................INITIAL VALUES...........................
NO TYP (X) (Y) (Z) (U) (V) (W) (T) (DIAM) (MFLOW)
2 ML -1.90e-03 1.07e-03 2.81e-04
3 ML -4.55e-04 1.50e-03 3.92e-04
8 ML 8.97e-04 2.17e-03 5.68e-04
9 ML -1.64e-04 2.34e-03 6.12e-04
I checked and all 10 injection points are on the inlet surface.
I tried using diffrent numbers of CPU-Cores.
I tried to create and load files with 5, 10 and 21 streams, on two different geometries.
The problem always remains, just diffrent number of streams are lost.

Intrestingly, although i could not make out a pattern of which particle streams are lost, for one file the same streams are lost when loaded into a new case (.cas).


for me, this does not make sense, since fluent itself created these points on the same geometry.


I appreciate any thoughts on this issue.
Cheers, Aden


PS: I am using Ansys Fluent 2022 R1
Different question, will the randomized surface injection have the same injectionpoints at every timestep?
