February 8, 2021 at 7:35 pmmercury1997SubscriberHello:nI'm a beginner for DPM function in ansys fluent. I want to ask a few question about DPM settings:n In the point properties what is the meaning of velocity and total flow rate. It's that the velocity is use to define the Initial velocity of the particles? And what is the meaning for the total flow rate (especially for a single point)?nIs the velocity and total flow rate don't connect with the set up on the inlet boundary condition(if iI use mass flow rate as a inlet boundary condition)?nHow should I define the inject of particle without any initial velocity. Set 0 m/s and 0 kg/s for velocity and mass flow rate can't get any result for particles tracking. Should I set up both value as a vey small number, for example 1e-15nHope you could answer my question, Thank you.nMany thanksnn
February 8, 2021 at 7:43 pmmercury1997SubscriberHello:n I'm a beginner for DPM function in ansys fluent. I want to ask a few question about DPM settings:n 1. In the point properties what do "velocity" and "total flow rate" refer to?n 2. Are the "velocity" and "total flow rate" have any relation with the set up what we define in inlet boundary condition? (Considering I define "Mass flow inlet" at the inlet of the whole structure mesh).n 3. Ideally I would not want to define any additional "velocity" and "total flow rate" to my particles in addition to what the inlet mass flow is.n Hope you could answer my question, Thank you.n

Note that this is a discrete mass flow rate and not a continuous mass flow (m_dot = rho*vel*area is not valid), instead m_dot = # particles / sec * mass_particle. If you set your DPM mass flow rate you know the mass of the particle based on density and diameter, the # particles / sec (usually referred as the strength) is the reciprocal of your particle time step.nnWe have not specified any velocity here yet, so that's why you need that input too.
