ahcai007 is on a distinguished road

I have written a code that will inject lagrangian particles into my domain and track their movements for each timestep. I am using an axisymmetric mesh with wedge BCs and 4 degree angle.

I solved the hitwedgePatch problem according to the thread below suggested by kmpan:

When the particle hits the Wedge BC, it behaves as if it was hitting a wall and bounce back, which is not what I want. I want it to enter the boundary and exit from the other boundary. I am aware that by using Cyclic BC will solve the problem. But, if I were to use cyclic BC, it would not match my experimental setup.

So, my question is, is it possible to make a Wedge BC that can behave like a Cyclic BC for a lagrangian case??
