Periodicity

Asked by Latifa El Ghezal on 2011-02-22

Hello,

I'm using yade bzr2742, I'm asking for the term ('periodic=True') on the makeCloud command.
In fact I would to obtain a sample with gravity deposition, I made facetBox and when I wrote the makeCloud command with periodic=True. I have sphere within the Box with another great one(yellow) which appears only when periodic is equal to True. And when the depository process began, sphere left the leftBox and go to the center of the yellow Box.
Could you please help met to overcome this ?

Best regrads,

Hi, you should not use periodic=true if you want to get spheres inside a box, since periodic clouds do not respect the lateral bounds. Use this option for periodic boundary conditions only.

Thanks Chareyre, that solved my question.
