When adding a new force for the particles (in src/lagrangian/intermediate/submodels/kinematic/particleForces) there are two methods available: calcCoupled() and calcConCoupled().

which of them should I choose? How should I calculate the coupled or non-coupled terms??

Thanks

Found the answer, If the force is between the particle and the carrier fluid it has to be calculated by the "calcCoupled" function (to be added to the source term of NV equation), otherwise (the force is only present between particles) it has to be calculated in the "calcNonCoupled" function.
