I'm working with the lagrangian solvers, and I would need to initialize a closed domain with a uniform particle concentration field.

I checked the injection models, but the only possibility I found is to manually specify the particle position in a file, which is kind of hard if the domain is not elementary and if the number of particles is high.

Any suggestion?

Hi, Alberto,

I also need to work with KinematicCloud in OpenFOAM 2.0, and it's been a long time since you initiated the thread. Have you got a satisfactory answer or solution to the problom?
