I wanted to add a force to the alphaphase moment equation.
This is a funciton of x, y and z location, which force is not dependent on time. For an exmaple, customF = customF(x,y,z) where i,j and k are indexing counters. Below is the folmula expression that I'd like to use. if(x(i)>x0 or x(i)<xl ) customF(i) = a*x(i1)*y(j)*z(k) + a*x(i)*y(j)*z(k) + a*x(i+1)*y(j)*z(k); else customF(i) = 0; The vector customF is composed of three components (x,y,z). How can I write this force in the OF?
