Re: [Question #697877]: unexpected Plot of normal force


Question #697877 on Yade changed:

Jan Stránský proposed the following answer:

> I am recording normal force on sphere
> Kindly help us with how we can plot the actual normal force

Kindly help us with explaining what "normal force" is [1].
- External force (which is constant)?
- Total force (which is not constant)?
- "Internal" interaction force between sphere and plate?
- ... ?

> Here I am expecting a constant value

you have several options, according to the answer above, respectively:
- O.forces.permF(0)[2]
- O.forces.f(0)[2]
- O.interaction[0,1].phys.normalForce[2]

actually maybe it is a good idea to export all of them and then decide
what you really want.

> I have not used force resetter

unless you know exactly what you are doing, always do use the force
