Hallo foamers,

I am trying to simulate a leakage of propane from a storage tank. my doudt over here is, can i define the whole leak in one cell, i.e., propane flow rate is defined in a single cell (area=270mm˛) of the mesh, (or) is it better to define the same leak with multiple cells, i.e., select 4 (example) mesh cells (area=270mm˛) together and define leak. Both has singnificant effect on the results (cloud formation). Which way, is right and why?
