It took him 10 years to create the special theory of relativity. So, I think, everything is relative. (2). So, if you can't beat them, join them. (3). If can't make the particle size larger, make the rest of it smaller. (by the way, what is 10e-5? you should check whether there is a limit on the range of particle sizes before you use the code. And after that, check the particle size and make sure that it is correct,regardless the code you use. ) (4). The number 10e-5 is sure worse than Y2K to produce diverged solution.

You should check a few things: 1) The volume occupied by the particles should be less than ten percent of the cells' volume. If the particle loading exceedes this, then the DPM model isn't valid. 2) Each numerical particle represents a certain amount of mass flow (or alternatively, a certain number of particles). The more numerical particles you have, the better. 3) You need to check the integration length scale and some of the other numerical setting in Fluent. Dr. David Schmidt, Consultant
