 May 10, 2016, 05:25 How to calculate the particles number by paraview? #1 Member   Ping Chang Join Date: Feb 2016 Location: Perth Posts: 88 Rep Power: 3 Hi all, Recently, I used simplereactingparcleFoam to simulate the particle problem. The simulation run well, however, I have a small question. How can I calculate the particles number in a specified area of the mesh after simulation? In my simulation, I have two different sized particles, can I calculate the number for each size particles? Am I able to use the preview to achieve these goals? Thanks.

Hi, Brian
I have already found that function. Anyway, thank you very much.

Kind Regards,

However, I'm only able to see the number of particles in my region of interest in a certain time step. Is there a way to count the total number of particles in a region throughout my whole simulation? (basically, I'm trying to find out the total number of particles that impact a particular surface). Regards, Ela
