Regarding surface injection in DPM

I am simulating the case mentioned in figure. In this problem liquid nitrogen is coming from a nozzle at an operating pressure of 70 kPa. Actual image during experiment is also attached.

Can I use surface injection for nozzle as the pressure difference is very less so spray cone formation is negligble? Nozzle geometry is attached for reference.

    If there is a "cone" behavior than better using a solid cone injection so that the streams are dispersed right away. You can still use surface injection but I guess more realistic is a cone like

  • I am in full agreement with your advice but I don't have the parameters required for cone injection like cone angle, velocity etc. and cone injection required 3d simulation (I don't know why cone injection is available in axisymmetric model?). So I have chosen surface injection.

    I have one more doubt. Since it is written in ansys manual that "If you create a surface injection, a particle stream will be released from each facet of the surface. You can use the Bounded and Sample Points options in the Plane Surface panel to create injections from a rectangular grid of particles in 3D"

    If I keep all the parameters same (in axisymmetric model) and continue to vary the mesh size of the surface form which particles are getting injected. Then how does ansys satisfy its continuity equation as number of particles getting injected is increasing (with their corresponding diameter) but mass flow rate is fixed.
