mrhappy is still having a problem:
Hey Robert,

Thank you so much for your reply. I really appreciate it.  I have gone
over [1] several times, but I don't know how to read this. For example

getCell((FlowEngineT)arg1, (float)arg2, (float)arg3, (float)pos) → int 
    get id of the cell containing (X,Y,Z).

I know that getCell() is function that requires 4 things and gives out one integer. However, what is (FlowEngineT)arg1, (float)arg2, (float)arg3, and (float)pos? Can you explain what the things in the brackets mean, in general? I know that they are variables that are required by the function, but what exactly do they mean. Maybe you can direct me to some reading material, that explains this thing.
With regards to the spheres not moving, whether the bonds are broken or not should not matter. The spheres should move due to the pressure. I will investigate this deeper once I have access to all the python functions of the flow engine. 

Thank you, Robert, for your help. I truly appreciate it.
