Numerical information 'flowing particles'

Post by PieterMallants » Mon May 21, 2018 3:37 pm

Hi

I am trying to simulate the 2D movement of solutes using the 'flowing particles' option. There are NO issues with the visualization and graphical representation after the simulation (from the 'draw particle positions' and 'draw particle trajectores'), however, I'm wondering if it is possible to get numerical information in some way on the flowing particles, e.g. the xz coordinates per time step or the time it took to cover a certain distance. Thanks in advance!

Pieter

Pieter,

You can use the command "Results->Convert Output to ASCII" and select "Particle trajectories (Particle.out). The binary file Particle.out will be converted to an ASCII (text) file Particle.txt, which will have information on each time step and the x- and z-coordinates of particle locations. I will find all information that you request in this file. J.

Here is an example for two particles:
Time Particle(1) Particle(2)
0 130.633 23.3164 264.638 25.5967
0.5 134.31 21.9532 264.331 25.3349
1 138.924 20.526 264.026 25.0913
2 147.515 18.3917 263.54 24.6933
3 147.515 18.3917 263.153 24.3745
5 147.515 18.3917 262.58 23.8805
10 147.515 18.3917 261.818 23.1801
