 April 28, 2003, 10:28 about DPM UDF fluent5.4.8 #1 Devy Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I have another problem.I used Compiled UDFs.In my DEFINE_DPM_SOURCE,I just use S->mass and S->energy.I activate DEFINE_DPM_LAW and DEFINE_DPM_SWITCH in FLUENT in the Custom Laws panel, which is opened from the Set Injection Properties panel.I also activate DEFINE_DPM_SOURCE in FLUENT in the Discrete Phase Model panel.When I perform trajectory calculations,I can get a result if I select Uncoupled Calculations.But if I select Coupled Calculations,it's divergence detected. regards Devy

How many particles are you injecting/sec ?? # of particles=total mass flow rate of particles/mass of one particle..

 April 29, 2003, 05:15 Re: about DPM UDF fluent5.4.8 #3 devy Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, Thank you for your reply. total mass flow rate of particles is 0.017kg/s. mass flow rate of primary flow is 0.17kg/s.

 May 1, 2003, 23:00 Re: about DPM UDF fluent5.4.8 #5 Devy Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, Than you for your help. total mass flow rate of particles is 0.017kg/s. mass flow rate of primary flow is 0.17kg/s. But when I total mass flow rate of particles is 0.00017kg/s, it's divergence detected if I select Coupled Calculations. What is one-way coupling and then 2way ? Thank you
