Can a grid represent less than one particle number?

    • cs_zy
      The channel is a 2D model.The inlet size is 750μm,314 grids, according to the standard particle release method, there will be 314 particle packages, if the particle diameter is 3μm, will the particle block the channel? Does it make physical sense to release particles in this way? Although I know that the DPM model does not consider the particle volume, I feel that the way of releasing particles is strange here. Should I change the way of releasing particles?

      While using DPM, It is recommended that the fraction of the volume occupied by the discrete phase in a cell should be less than 10-12% of the cell volume. This is applicable globally as well.
