where can I find the mass flow rate of particle parcels?
From Fluent manual, the mass of particle parcels is uniform if I didn't choose randomize starting point.
Q1: based on my setting, DPM streams should have same mass, is it correct?
Q2: Each parcel could be regarded as a representative particle; so how fluent makes a parcel, by grouping particles with similar diameters?
Q3: Why could not I find the surface option in my FLUENT interface?
