How to output the contact force in DEM?

Hi, all!
I'm the beginner in DualSPHysics. I'm very interested in DEM in DualSPHysics. I simulated a floating body contacting with another one and I want to check the contact force between them. How to output the contact force of DEM? Are there any examples about it?
Thanks for your reply!


  • PS: The floating bodies' contact occurs in fluid. With the ComputeForces explained in Post-processing calculations.pdf, how to distinguish the calculated force belong to FSI or DEM contact?
  • I am afraid that you have to navigate into the source files and implement the output of those values on your own
