Thanks Rob,

So if I understand correctly, the reason my ‘starting’ particle temperatures are not the same as my inlet condition is because as soon as the mainstream flow interacts with the particles it increases the temperature of the particles and as you say, since the particle tracking is such a small distance the initial temperature for this steady simulation does as 374K not 300K.

EDIT** I realise I've been plotting just the static temperature so the temperature of the bulk flow, whereas I've been wanting the particle variable-> particle temperature instead.


Thanks Rob!
