I am trying to calculate the residence time in a TJunction and I was wondering if I could perform that just by post-processing the results using Paraview (without injecting a tracer through scalarTransportFoam)
Try using the calculator to compute what you need.
I watched your Kitware ParaView Streamlines Webinar I generated ParticleTracer from a line source at one of the inlets of my geometry, however I am not sure how can I use the calculator to compute the residence time of the particles.
Is residence time different from integration time ?
No it should be the same idea, however I am not able to find the integration time when I use ParticleTracer
Please share your data.
You can find my data here: VTK-TJunction.zip (3.5 MB)
Im unable to generate streams on your data, do you have a state file ?
I am not sure why the previous file is not working. I have this geometry (rectangular channel) where I was able to generate the particles, you can find the paraview state file inside the folder “recChannelParticleTracer.pvsm” Files
the openfoam data seems missing
your pvsm file point to a foam file which does not seems to exists anywhere in your archive.
I have reuploaded the data VTK_StateFile
I know when using StreamTracer → I can get the integration time which corresponds to the cell residence time but for ParticleTracer → TemporalParticlesToPathlines → does the ParticleAge corresponds to residence time as well?
Hello Mathieu thank you for all your help.
I am trying to use the plugin: StreamingParticles, I loaded the plugin but I can’t find it when I open the following window:
where can I look for it?
Create a new layout to make the new representation type appears.
