Error 1100, des/check_cell_movement.f:136, DMP

Hi everyone, in the case with DMP simulation(NODESI=4, NODESJ=5, NODESk=1), the error 1100 popup at the runing time of 0.15s, shown as Fig1. The particle velocity at the inlet is low, 0.25m/s. So I do not know why the particle detected in a ghost cell. Thank you for your help.

A collision is probably being missed, causing a particle to reach an extreme velocity. There are particles that miss collisions with the STL file and make it into the cylinders

I increased the particle-wall normal spring coefficient to 100. This seems to stop the particles from entering the cyclinders. I also reduced the resolution of the cylinders from 50 to 30. You don’t need that many facets and MFiX likes large, nice facets.

Thank you very much for your help.

You want to make sure that the particle-wall spring stiffness coefficient (kn_w) is no larger than the particle-particle spring stiffness coefficient (kn). Said differently, (kn >= kn_w) is safe whereas (kn < kn_w) can cause problems. The reason is, the particle time step (dtsolid) is calculated based only on the particle-particle spring stiffness (kn). If kn < kn_w, the particle time step might be too large to correctly resolve wall collisions resulting in unphysical particle movements.

Dear sir. As your said, there will be problems if I increased kn_w only. How to solve the error1100?

Hi ljneu. Have you solved the error 1100? I meet the same problem. Can you give me some help?

I noticed recently that a tcoll_tmp based on the particle-wall spring stiffness is also calculated, but the line using this to update tcoll for the the solids time step calculation (dtsolid) is commented out:

Is there a reason for this? To me, it makes sense to use the minimum tcoll based on both the particle-wall and particle-particle stiffnesses.

Julia: I don’t have an exact answer to your question, but look at check_solids_dem.f line 648 which has a similar computation, which is not commented out.

! Calculate the collision time scale.
            TCOLL_TMP = PI/SQRT(KN/MASS_EFF - &

I’m not sure why L682 is commented. I’ll try to find out why.
