Hi all

I am new here and also fairly new to Ansys Fluent, so I am here to ask for advice, suggestions and tips.

I am wanting to simulate the flow of solid particles from a Silo eg. coal discharge from a hopper/silo. I have done quite a bit of reading but I still don't know how to do this. I am struggling to find any tutorials completing anything nearly similar to what I am wanting to complete. Has anyone got any experience with this and could help me out? Or even show me some resources that explain how to do this? Im really quite lost

I know how to model, and complete the mesh, but my problems arise when setting up everything after that. Any help, tips, suggestions and links to anything that might be relevant or helpful would be greatly appreciated. Also if my description is vague im happy to expand and add more information.
