fmpmorgado is on a distinguished road

I am trying to build my case using the solver MPPICFoam for my study case, consisting in building a small pile of ash (stationary) and verify the behavior with different flow velocity, to validate with wind tunnel experiments.

I can't find much information regarding the solver online, and therefore decided to post my doubts below:

1. Is it possible to change the particles diameter? (i.e.: above 1 mm). I have been testing it, but can't see any difference in ParaView.

2. Is it possible to create an initial stationary particle pile, using the file KinematicCloudPositions?

Thanks in Advance.
