Apply barostat in Non-periodic boundary condition.

​Dear all

Good day.​

I have a mono layer panel of atom for uniaxial tension simulation in LAMMPS.

​I apply non-perodic boundary condition in my simulation boxed. I have question that can I apply barostat to control of pressure on the box

Thank you in advance.

Dear all
Good day.

I have a mono layer panel of atom for uniaxial tension simulation in LAMMPS.

I apply non-perodic boundary condition in my simulation boxed. I have
question that can I apply barostat to control of pressure on the box

if you have a non-periodic dimension, you cannot apply a barostat,
because there is no physical meaning to it.
where should the pressure (or rather force) be coming from when there
is nothing?
