Re: [ESPResSo-users] fluid-particle coupling in different LB resolutions

Hey Iva and Markus,

There is most likely a bug in Espresso when scaling the external force
and outputting the velocity with values of agrid that do not equal 1.
There was a discussion some time ago and it definitely does seem like
something is wrong in the conversions:

I hope that helps!
