Now I am confused in the difference between particle and parcel. I want to know wether the 'p' in dpm is point to particle or parcel.

'p' is a pointer on a particle.
I think, when using the DPM model, you cannot confuse particles and parcels. (instead maybe if you are using DEM collision model or breakup/coallescence)

Best,

Mat

Nerwar be careful "wether" is a castrated sheep it's sounds a little rudely. (Excuse me it's joke)

"P" in word DPM sometimes can be meaning the parcels. I've seen it in many time in different articles. Someone see the difference between those meanings but another don't.
