mba_olufemi is on a distinguished road
I am having problem understanding the terms in the kinematicCloudProperties
Could someone pls help me?

type patchInjection; //this is clear, there are 3 types patch, cone and manual
duration 5.0; //somewhat bogus; must be smaller than the total sim time?
patch inlet; //the place the particles will be generated
patchName inlet; //this is clear
massTotal 1.225E-10; //this is the mass of the parcel, rho, alpha defined elsewhere
parcelsPerSecond 1000; //this very confusing. What this means?
massFlowRate constant 0.0; // What this means ??? Is different than ‘parcelsPerSecond’
parcelBasisType mass; //mass, number or fixed. What’s the difference?
nParticle 1; //apparently in a parcel there can be more than 1 particle?
U0 (1.13076 0.0 0.0); //speed vector. Must it match the flow speed?
SOI 0.0; //injection star time. This is clear.
flowRateProfile constant 1.0; //constant or table. No idea what this means.
type RosinRammler; // Fixed, Uniform, RosinRammler, Normal, Exponential
minValue 0.0;
d 1.0E-5;
maxValue 1.0E-4;
n 4.0;
