You will use the Injections panel (Figure  22.12.7) to create, copy, delete, and list injections.

(You can also click on the Injections... button in the Discrete Phase Model panel to open the Injections panel.)



Creating Injections


To create an injection, click on the Create button. A new injection will appear in the Injections list and the Set Injection Properties panel will open automatically to allow you to set the injection properties (as described in Section  22.12.4).



Modifying Injections


To modify an existing injection, select its name in the Injections list and click on the Set... button. The Set Injection Properties panel will open, and you can modify the properties as needed.

If you have two or more injections for which you want to set some of the same properties, select their names in the Injections list and click on the Set... button. The Set Multiple Injection Properties panel will open, which will allow you to set the common properties. For instructions about using this panel, see Section  22.12.7.



Copying Injections


To copy an existing injection to a new injection, select the existing injection in the Injections list and click on the Copy button. The Set Injection Properties panel will open with a new injection that has the same properties as the injection you selected. This is useful if you want to set another injection with similar properties.



Deleting Injections


You can delete an injection by selecting its name in the Injections list and clicking on the Delete button.



Listing Injections


To list the initial conditions for the particle streams in the selected injection, click on the List button. FLUENT reports the initial conditions (in SI units) in the console under various columns:



Shortcuts for Selecting Injections


FLUENT provides a shortcut for selecting injections with names that match a specified pattern. To use this shortcut, enter the pattern under Injection Name Pattern and then click Match to select the injections with names that match the specified pattern. For example, if you specify drop*, all injections that have names beginning with drop (e.g., drop-1, droplet) will be selected automatically. If they are all selected already, they will be deselected. If you specify drop?, all surfaces with names consisting of drop followed by a single character will be selected (or deselected, if they are all selected already).
