Re: About the easiest method to obtain the contact force of each particle?


If I understand correctly, you need the same loop as for computing unbalancedForce, don't you?
You can check the code, it's something like :

loop on bodies
   f += Forces[body]
... }


I need to write a small routine so that the contact force of each particle can be checked from which I would like to accurately judge its value, if the contact force of one particle is (or close) zero, I should mark it as "quick" condition, suppose all particles are in the fluid. Which list should I look into? The ElasticContactLaw seems to loop over the contact but not for each particle.

Thanks in advance!
