Hi all,

I am trying to find a way to do efficient droplet counting in paraview. My simulations generate a large number of droplets in the domain and I'd like to quantify their sizes/velocities, etc. Short of doing this manually, can anyone suggest a method in paraview that might be capable of doing this type of work? I've done the simulation with interFoam and multiphaseInterFoam.

Dear Anthony,

you could try to export a graphic file (e.g. *.bmp) and use an image-recognition software (e.g., the freeware ImageJ) to count the droplets.
