passive tracer: how to release them after certain period?

#1 Post by aakashsane » Thu Jul 18, 2019 8:10 pm

I am simulating with 8 passive tracers (dye_01 - dye_08).
I need to release them not at the same time but after interval of say 2 hours.
So dye_01 will be released at t=0, dye_02 at t=0+2 hrs, etc etc.

The only way I know right now is to do it manually, i.e. save a restart file every 2 hrs, give the tracer impulse and continue again, and repeat 7 times! :?

I was wondering if there is any faster way to do this? Are there any options I am missing or do I need to add some additional function?

Any help will be appreciated.
