How to display the location of particles in a narrow pipe using Macroscopic particle model (MPM)

      Hello everybody,

      I am simulating the motion of sand in a narrow pipe.  I tried to create the animation, and I keep the autosave of animation for particular time step in the fluent. The problem now after writing a file in the animation playback screen, it was difficult to visualize the motion of the particle, due to the high length to diameter ratio of the pipe (L=1m, D=0.003). I wonder if there is any procedure to visualize the motion of particle in the saved animation file. 

      Other problem I faced in MPM, after I have created the periodicity in fluent, use the TUI command: define>b-c>m-z>m-p….., I am not able to add the MPM model, using define>mod>add, because TUI still defined with Boundary condition. It is possible to switch off from periodic BC to add MPM model?

       

      Thanks, in advance!

      For MPM better to rely on Fluent Post-Processing the dedicated MPM display functions. Avoid using DPM Post-Processing or External Post-Processing here.n

      Thank you very much for replying, I will try this approach! nAlso, it is possible to switch off from periodic BC to add MPM model using the TUI command?nBest regardsnn nn
