velocity components of dispersed phase in posdat.f
Hi! Somebody know answer on a question:How to receive velocity components (UD,VD,WD) of dispersed phase in the subroutine postad.f?

about posdat.f
Dear I have the same problem, did you get the solution of problem.

In 3.26, they are not available. I don't know about 4.xx.

As a workaround, they are available in dropro.f. You can grab the vaules, put them in an array & pass it to posdat via a common block.

Here is sample code for the dropro.f part:

DIMENSION DrpVel(mxDrp,3)

DrpVel(IDR,1) = UD
DrpVel(IDR,2) = VD
DrpVel(IDR,3) = WD

Put the same dimension & common statements in posdat.Be careful in which posdat "level" you try to use the infomation. It's only good for the end of step posdat call.

you can also get them from drobrk.f by sharing them in common blocks.

I also tried and used DRV(ID,1/2/3),corresponding to UD/VD/WD, it seems that then can be directly obtained from posdat.f
