To get away with the warning: Adjust your tracking parameters (Increase Max Number of Steps for example). Moreover as you are trying to calculate the collisions your particle time step size has to be at leat 1/10 of the collision time. You need then to approximate the collision time based on the spring constant, reduced mass and coefficient of restitution.

Dear Mr. Amine;
Thanks for your response.
I tried reducing the dem time step to 1e-5, the fluid time step to 1e-4 and increased the maximum number of DPM time steps to 50,000.
Unfortunately, the warning still exists and there is a non-realistic solids void fraction of 0.002 ?!
Can the problem in the parcel's mass flow?
I calculated it into Matlab m-file as follows:
total_mass_flow = 0.3*0.3*0.01*0.6*density; % mass of the solids occupied 0.3x0.3x0.01 2D domain with 0.6 initial void fraction
m_p = (pi/6)*diameter*diameter*diameter*density; % physical particle mass
n_p = total_mass_flow/m_p/x_count/y_count/z_count; % total number of physical particles/parcel
mass_flow = n_p*m_p/1e-8; % parcel mass flowrate in 1e-8 injection time period

You have the possibility of volume injection in Fluent. Use it meanwhile switch off flow. After the particles settled down switch on flow. You do not require other non drag forces for solids. Use DDPM for dense beds.
