Default twoPhaseEulerFoam - particle diameter distribution

Hi Foamers,

i'm using twoPhaseEulerFoam and i would like to use some different diameters for my particles in the same field.
Is there a modell for a normal distribution instead of the diameterModel constant?
I'm initializing my particle field with setFields - maybe i can create some more fields with different diameter?

Thank you

Looks like you need population balance modelling. Look at OpenFoam-dev and OF-6 where the method of classes are implemented in reactingTwophaseEulerFoam

you can use normal distribution in lagrangian solvers, (MPPICFoam, DPMFoam). I am using it in OF 5.0.
