I think it would work notwithstanding it's quite tricky to implement...
My current task is to test a sieving membrane. So some external action is
required to force the mixture go towards the place where separation occurs.
In papers, a rigid wall moving with constant velocity is sometimes used for
this. If one just accelerates the mixture particles with acc-grps, it seems
not realistically as for me, so I'm in guesses what's the best way to manage
such tasks with gromacs.
Thank you for the useful remarks,
