Default Display Particle Position on a Plane
Posts: n/a
Hello everyone, First of all i have to say i am fairly new with fluent and i have never written a UDF before. So,my problem is that i am trying to write a UDF which displays the positions of particles as they pass through a plane. I am trying to do that by using the DEFINE_DPM_OUTPUT macro, but when using this macro the particle positions will be stored in a file. So is there any way to display the particle positions on a plane? Thank you very much for your help Jana

Hello Dear freind, about your question, you can use Report menu in fluent, Report-Discrete Phase...-sample . In this menu you can specify your favorite plane and display particles in this plane. good luck
