I noticed my simulation is not using my specified spread parameter (3.5), rather is using 2.84!!! Why is this happening??
I checked this with a manual calculation of the RR distribution based on particle sampling over a cross-sectional floating surface, and with the dpm summary report!!
If someone knows how fluent deviates from my specified value, please let me know!

Thanks for your kind reply
I did a particle sampling for my combusting particles over a cross-sectional floating surface in my injector (where no reactions are taking place yet). I ran it for approx 2,000 particle injection time steps and then post-processed the data in the histogram tool. I weighted the data by parcel-mass and divided the frequency distribution by the bin size. Then compared this to the derivative (PDF) of the analytical RR.
Blue line: my pre-defined (analytics)l PDF RR (n=3.5)
Red line: fluent (analytical) PDF RR based on reported spread parameter (n=2.84) (summary report)
Squares: fluent (numerical) PDF RR based on particle sampling
From here I see Fluent is deviating my spread parameter, so don't know what is happening. Should I sample for a longer time?

Does anyone in the community has noticed something similar to the above problem? Thanks
