How to great a ‘blob’ inlet.

      Hi,

      I am trying to model jet breakup using DPM.

      I want to inject a single 'blob' of liquid that breaks up into droplets. How do I set my particle injection size as the size of the nozzle diameter and then see it break up?

      I understand that cloud tracking needs to be turned on for this, however the option to turn on cloud tracking is not active.

      I am also unsure of the difference between DPM and DDPM.


      Thanks in advanced

      I am not sure why you want to use the DDPM apporach. Stick to simple DPM and look in the manual after the Madabushi Breakup model. n

      Ok Thankyou, I have switched off DPM and am just using a discrete phase with an injection. The tutorial involves just injecting single particles into a flow, but I wish to inject a single 'blob' of fluid that then breaks up. I cannot find anything in the ANSYS/FLUENT guide that alludes to this except the cloud tracking method where I will set the initial cloud diameter equal to the nozzle diameter. However the option to tick cloud tracking is still 'ghosted', as seen above.n

      Another option that I think might work is using a 'droplet' particle type as the injection, but this option is also ghosted out.nn
