TAGGED: discrete-phase-model, dpm, fluent, udf, udf-fluent
May 4, 2022 at 10:02 pmnicko627SubscriberHello, as it says in the title, I'd like to create an injection in the Discrete-Phase Model that moves along a predefined path in a transient simulation. I've gone down the path of looking at UDF's (DEFINE_DPM_INJECTION_INIT seems to be the choice), but I don't see any documentation of the children in the C-struct 'Injection* I'. I assume there is a value corresponding to every item in Fluent's standard GUI that I could change, like mass flow rate, particle injection velocity, etc., I just don't know what to access them as. Now, assuming that there is a child of the injection that tells me the injections position, am I allowed to simply change that value in the code? I don't see any macro for setting the value of things in an injection. Thanks, Nick

May 5, 2022 at 1:27 pmnicko627SubscriberAh I see, so the way to do it would be to set up the injection at the beginning of my path, and then at every time step, I move the particles' initial positions in the fluent loop, loop(p, I->p).
I now am looking at Table 3.29 in the UDF manual; are you suggesting that I should do something like this in my udf:
P_INIT_POS(p) = path_x[timestep];
P_INIT_POS(p) = path_y[timestep];
P_INIT_POS(p) = path_z[timestep];
I just realized that the example in the manual shows that the above can be done, but with particle diameter/stream flow rate. Thanks for answering my question!
