Hello everyone

Im trying a simple case:

A flow over a cylinder at Re=80, with unsteady formulation.
I turned radiation scheme "do", so that the cylinder send radiation.
Then i inject particles to measure uv radiation that every particle had received.

Ive doubts and problems:

1- Should i turn on dpm after the flow and radiation convergence or should turn before any simulation.
2- I inject particles from a surface "inlet" and i didnt change start and stop time. should ?. The problem is that if i check unsteady particle track it happens nothing (literally), but if i uncheck that optinon i can mesure radiation i every particle. i dont understand waht im doing wrong.

Notice that I have and udf implmented that mesure this quantities and works real fine.

In advance thanks.

once you will use dpm , i guess you have to give ESCAPE condition on the "inlet" and "outlet"
try to give a certain start and stop time and see whether your getting any particles inside your geometry.

im not sure but it may help,
