Hi,

I added the particles in the middle of the simulation, specified the triplets, and now need to calculate the bending force. How can I proceed with it?

I have a simulation box with particles added to it and have specified the triplets to calculate the bending potential. Later, I added more particles to the box in the middle of the simulation and needed to instruct HOOMD to calculate the bending potential again. But I don't know how I can do it. Is it possible to again calculate the bending potential in the middle of the simulation at a given timestep?

Any suggestion will guide me in proceeding with the problem statement.

Regards,
Avishek Kumar

Avishek,


Angle force classes apply a force and virial on every particle in the simulation state commensurate with the potential energy: U_\mathrm{angle} = \sum_{(i,j,k) \in \mathrm{angles}} U_{ijk}(\theta)
 
Each angle is defined by an ordered triplet of particle tags in the hoomd.State member angle_group. HOOMD-blue does not construct angle groups, users must explicitly define angles...

In other words, adding the new triplet(s) to the angle group is the only step you need to take.
