Hello guys!

I am compiling an UDF for calculation dof the drag force between a gas and solid phase in a Fluent simulation that includes the Discrete Phase Module.

I would like to know the number of particles that are located in a cell in order to calculte a volume fraction of solid particles inside that cell. However, I have seen that all the UDF for the DPM are calculated for only particle at the time.

Please, tell me if you know a way to calculate or know the main properties of two or more particles with an UDF.

Thanks in advance for your important help

Best regards
