Using multiInteraction type patchInteractionModel

Hi I am using MPPICFoam,I am simulating a riser of circulating fluidised bed. Which consists of cylindrical geometry Inlet at the bottom,Outlet at top and circular wall. In which I have first distributed the particle by using injectionModel of type manualinjection and difined the particle positions initially. Now,What I have to do is insert the same number of particles in the inlet patch which is coming out of the Outlet patch. I searched and found that by using multiInteraction we can apply multiple patchintraction models at a time.I applied the multiInteraction patch intraction model as per the instruction in PatchInteractionModel.H but found following error. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Unknown patch interaction model type coincidentBaffleInteraction Valid patch interaction model types are: 5 ( localInteraction multiInteraction none rebound standardWallInteraction ) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Can anybody tell what is coincidentBaffleInteraction. Or how to apply cyclic type boundary condition for the particle phase onle by using this this patch intraction type. Suraj

Hi Suraj,
Have you tried cyclic boundary condition
