1 Introductory tutorials
There are two solvers including tutorial available for beginners:
2 Post processing
For post processing particles using ParaView, please refer to: Postprocessing of Lagrangian particles
For particle tracking in ParaView the utility particleTracks can be used. Copy the particleTracksProperties dictionary into the <CASE>/constant directory:
cp $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/lagrangian/particleTracks/particleTracksProperties <CASE>/constant/
Then execute the utility in the case directory:
and visualize the particleTracks opening them in ParaView.
