Dear Henderson,

yes, it should work like that, but if you’re using the ParticleManager, you also have to update the external acceleration stored there. Apparently this is not easy in OpenLB 1.5 because it’s a private variable. In the future release you’ll update it like this: particleManager.setExternalAcceleration(accExt);. This function is missing in 1.5. As a workaround, if waiting for the next release is not an option, you could make the variable _externalAcceleration public in src/olb/particles/particlemanager.h and then modify it directly or write a simple setter function yourself.

Best regards,
