Default shape factor
Posts: n/a
Hello. I am using the model of discrete phase and my particles are not spherical. I can apparently correct it with the use of a shape factor, but in the panel of injections to me it continues requesting the diameter like data. how can I do it?thanks and good luck!!

What shape are your particles? The shape factor experiments were based on flat discs as far as I can recall
