Dear Jan,
Thank you for giving suggestion! I tried the method you mention. However, when running the programm, something goes wrong.
I use the settlingCube3d example and add a rectangular poiseuille flow. The particle is a sphere particle. At the firsi time, the programm goes very well. However, at about 5400 step ,the avEnergy and avRho become -nan ,and a few steps later, the position and velocity become very big, like this.
