We consider the flat flow solution to the mean curvature equation with forcing in ℝn. Our main resultstates that tangential balls in ℝn under a flat flow with a bounded forcing term will experience fattening, which generalizes the result in [N. Fusco, V. Julin and M. Morini, Stationary sets and asymptotic behavior ofthe mean curvature flow with forcing in the plane, preprint (2020), https://arxiv.org/abs/2004.07734] from the planar case to higher dimensions. Then, as in the planar case, we characterize stationary sets in ℝn for a constant forcing term as finite unions of equisize balls with mutually positive distance.
