Hi,

This might seem like a simple question but is there a way of monitoring/counting the number of times particles collide with a surface in fluent?

Cheers,

Dan

I am not sure how to do it (I don't know any about particles simulation on Fluent) or if there is a ready macro to do it, but probably you can use an if statement for "if there is a particle in the cell" add 1 to a counter. if not, add 0. you can verify the zone ID of the face within fluent.
