The Fine Particle Model (FPM) is an Fluent-based model for Eulerian simulations of the formation, growth, transport, and deposition of particles in systems influenced by fluid flow, heat transfer, and chemical reactions, such as in chemical reactors of the type shown below.
The FPM accounts for particle-particle interactions and simulates the spatial and temporal evolution of the particle size distribution. The FPM is typically used to simulate the behavior of particles smaller than 1 µm. The FPM can also be used to simulate the spatial and temporal evolution of the chemical composition of the particles.

The FPM GUI panels is fully integrated with the Fluent GUI, permitting easy and reliable setting of Fluent parameters through FPM GUI panels. All FPM GUI panels are available through an FPM menu item. FPM UDFs can be used to program additional microphysical expressions, such as expressions for coagulation and condensation rates, which are then available through the FPM GUI panels.
