Defining DPM Particle Injections with a UDF
Hello all,

I'd like to inject single particles with varying properties at specific locations and at specific times that are not known at the start of the simulation. I know I could easily define injections before the simulation if I knew all the details then.

I'm already using a UDF to identify the time and location a particle is to be injected. Does anyone know of a way to create injections that have not been defined in the injections GUI using a UDF?

DEFINE_DPM_INJECTION_INIT only works for injections defined before the simulation begins. A text injection file seems like a possibility, but wouldn't the injection file need to modified on the fly? Is that possible?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated as I can't find any documentation on this in the forum or in the user's manual.

Thank you in advance,
