Indent fix

I used the indent fix and asked to put the force on the screen.
But I’m not sure about the meaning of the values I obtain.
The force is F=-K(R-r)^2
So is the force on the screen the average force or the sum of each force on each atoms?

Thank you!

each atoms?

just have a look at the documentation:

This fix computes a global scalar energy and a global 3-vector of
forces (on the indenter), which can be accessed by various output
commands. The scalar and vector values calculated by this fix are
"extensive".

I.e. it is the sum of the force on the indenter
due to all atoms that interact with it.
