Repulsive forces between cells and walls can be enabled through the following functions:
hemocell::setRepulsion(T repulsionConstant, T repulsionCutoff); hemocell::enableBoundaryParticles(T boundaryRepulsionConstant, T boundaryRepulsionCutoff);
Details on their implementations can be found in
The repulsive forces should be enable before starting the main HemoCell iterations.
The first function
setRepulsion enables the repulsion between cells with a
given repulsion constant and cut-off distance for the repulsion to be active.
enableBoundaryParticles applies a repulsion force between the
cells and the boundary walls of the domain. The effect of these forces will
strongly depend on the chosen repulsion constants and cut-off distance
boundaryRepulsionConstant are to be
supplied in lattice units and are internally converted to SI units.
Alternatively, HemoCell used to provide more advanced repulsion methods
considering custom repulsion potential forces, see
legacy/thrombosit/adhesionForces3D.h. Although this feature is currently not
actively supported in HemoCell, one might pursue such an implementation for more
advanced force potential implementations.
