Hi, I am currenty working with the dieselFoam solver. I need to inject droplets in a certain area, and I need the droplets to be evenly distributed over this area. Right now I am using a definedInjector which is large enough to cover this whole area. My injector model is constantInjector with a spray angle of 0. However, the droplets are distributed in a way looking like a Gaussian distribution. I can't figure out how to inject droplets with an evenly distribution. Any ideas are appreciated.

Edit: just for the records, I solved the problem. Basically, the code didn't recognize that my problem is pseudo-2D which caused some mistakes. I wrote a injector especially for 2D problems to avoid this. If anyone ever needs it, just let me know.
