Particle injection

Asked by Romain on 2018-04-14

Dear All,

I want to model the filling of a box with particle until it is fully packed with particle.
I need to periodically inject new particles into the the box, deal with load transfer between particles and overlapping (especially when the box with be packed with particles).

Do you know if ESyS is capable of performing such a simulation ?

Thanks in advance for the reply,

Hi Romain,

Have you found out how to do this?
I am also trying to do the same thing.

Hi Kahlil Cui,

I got no answer.
So I think this is not possible with Esys.

Hi Romain,

I havn't tried this myself but inserting a particle into a running simulation should be doable using the createParticle(...) function as described in the simple example in the Tutorial (see section 2.1.3). If you want to do this periodically you'll probably have to put the createParticle() call into the run() function of a Runnable (for Runnables, see section 2.2.4 of the Tutorial) .


Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Romain for more information if necessary.
