injection particles
I have injected 25 particles of fuel through dpm. when i track these particles i get this information

number tracked 25 evaporated 23 incomplete 02

i am using plane orifice atomizer.

i am suspecious about two incomplete injection of particles. incomplete particles mean no evaporation, hence these particles will not oxidize and ultimately will not produce the heat of combustion.

Or should i consider that even two particles are not evaporating, but all the fuel that i have defined in my injection panel has been producing the heat of combustion.

actually i am interested in the total heat that has been added to my fluid by oxidation of fuel. how can i check my entire fuel is producing the heat after oxidation.

Also if any body can tell me what is 'particle tracking concurrency'

hope to see someone answer me with good detail
