Patch- injection point in fluent

      Hello,


      I am a bioprocessing student, I am trying to do a bioreactor simulation with a stationary addition  (patch) but I need to add a constant flow rate. Can I use the stationary addition for this or not? 


       


      Thank you,

      I'm not quite sure what you're trying to do, but think you're trying to add material into the domain? If so have a look at the Cell Zone Source terms in the User Guide.  If you're trying to add particles you want the Injection part of the Discrete Phase Model.

      Until now I am able to inject a uniform concentration of tracer. I selected a zone at the top of my tank and patched it with a value of 1 and set up point monitors to track the tracer over time. I have an issue trying to inject a continues flow of tracer.  Can I use Discrete phase model for that?

      If you want a continuous stream of tracer from that zone you need to separate the cells you patched (or wherever you want the tracer to come from) and then use a source term (mass and species).
