Hi everyone,

I want to add 20 particles with different, fixed diameters. The injectionModel in my kinematicCloudProperties-file looks like that:

type manualInjection;
massTotal 0;
parcelBasisType fixed;
nParticle 10;
SOI 0;
positionsFile "kinematicCloudPositions";
U0 (0.235 0 0); //Mittelwert aus Auswertung

type fixedValue;
fixedValueDistribution {

value 100e-6
value 10e-6;
value 50e-6;
value 250e-6;
value 330e-6; // 5
value 400e-6;
value 450e-6;
value 550e-6;
value 650e-6; value 100e-6;
value 750e-6; // 10
value 850e-6;
value 950e-6;
value 200e-6;
value 1e-6 ;
value 5000e-6 ; // 15
value 600e-6 ;
value 700e-6;
value 800e-6;
value 900e-6;
value 1000e-6; // 20
But if i run the simulation, all particles have the last given value as diameter.
Where is my error? Can anyone help me?

I also tried using a normaldistribution or a RosinRamlerdistribution and both worked, but i didn't get the values I prefer.

Thanks for helping me!
