DPM model in closed system?

    • dawid.kruczek
      Is it possible to create a dpm model without inlet and outlet? I'm interested in introducing particles into the fluid that is under the cone. The entire simulation takes place in a closed cylinder-cone system.

      It is possible to use DPM model without inlet and outlet boundary conditions. Those conditions are primarily for the continuous phase. Please be informed that if you select the particle type as 'Massless', it won't move as it is driven by the flow, which I believe is at rest in your case.


      However, if your physics involves heating of the fluid, additional care needs to be taken during setting up the solver.
