Combining two metal EAM potentials, use to generate alloy potential

Dear all,

I have Aluminum and Nickel potentials, individually

How to use them to generate Al-Ni alloy

Then to simulate as alloy using lammps script, not as single crystal

Could you suggest a method, some understanding over this



See the pair_style eam doc page. LAMMPS will
mix two eam potentials for you, but it may not
be what you want. You can also build an alloy-style
file yourself as input, and mix it exactly as you
