These are all great answers, thanks everyone. It is definitely more of a
physics question than a programming one.
My objective is to determine the constant g in the offset between the
bare friction and effective friction of the system in reference to the
above paper (Alrichs and Dunweg 1999, and again in Usta et al 2005). The
velocity of a particle under an external force was measured and I can
only assume a terminal velocity was somehow determined.
I think simulating flow between two plates could give the desired
effect, as long as the system was large enough in the direction normal
to the plates. I'm going to try it.
This is a very interesting point but I need to look into the
implications of it to see if it satisfies the my problem. My hunch is
that it does.
I think Stefan's solution is exactly what you can do to measure the settling velocity and the mobility/friction. In addition, you may want to fix the particle on the grid to capture the position dependence of the effective friction. Since ESPResSo uses linear interpolation, the effect is quite pronounced.
Flow between plates has a different Stokeslet of the point force, so that is more tricky but possible too.
