Hi everyone,

Firstly, if this is an unnecessary question sorry for this. I did solve a case with using PISO algorithm similar to pitzDaily file. I did LES simulation now I want to take it to the next level with particle-tracking. You can see what I've done at the attachment. I just want to a few particle goes to the volume of my geometry with inlet (at the bottom) and flow to the outlet (at the top). I looked for a tutorial case like this but I couldn't find anything. Is there a way to couple my case with particle-tracking cases? I am open to any advice (or source).

By the way, I'm adding my files and some screenshots in case you want to know.

Best regards,
Said.

You can use icoUncoupledParcelFoam to solve particles with obtained flow field.

Hi ybapat,

I tried icoUncoupledParcelFoam to ran my own case and it worked just fine. As you see in the attachment I did enter the 11 particle's position with my hands. But I want to the particles to enter the system on their own, without entering their position. How can i do this? And I wonder, is there a way to see where these particles accumulate in the system?

Note: I tried with simpleFoam pitzDaily case, not LES.

You can try different types of injections available.

Hi again ybapat,

I ran the simulation by injection (patchInjection). But there is a problem. After a while, the cycle stops working before completion. Why is this happening? What should I do?

Hi everyone,

I think i did solve my problem. I just reduced the parcelsPerSecond and increased the duration.

Code:
injectionModels
    {
        model1
        {
            type            patchInjection;
            parcelBasisType fixed;
            patchName       inlet;
            nParticle       1;
            SOI             0;
            U0              (10 0 0);
            parcelsPerSecond 1000;
            sizeDistribution
            {
                type        normal;
                normalDistribution
                {
                    expectation 650e-6;
                    variance 25e-6;
                    minValue 500e-6;
                    maxValue 800e-6;
                }

            massTotal       0;
            duration 100;
        }
    }
