Creating particle track animations using the DPM model
How to create particle track animations with Fluents DPM model?
Generate a series of TIFF files using the following procedure. The TIFF files can then be combined into an animation .
1. Solve the flow field with the steady-state solver.
2. Turn off the momentum equations (and turbulence if appropriate) to freeze the flow field.
3. Use the unsteady solver for the DPM calculation.
4. Display particle tracks and store the TIFF files using the execute command macro at each time step (or every nth time step).
Use the start and stop injection times to control whether particles are continuously injected during the animation or only at time zero.
1. See step 4 above.
