Dear LAMMPS users
I create an edge dislocation in FCC Aluminum in LAMMPS by removing half-plane (or planes) of atoms. but in the other method (Osetsky method) I do not know how to introduce an edge dislocation at the beginning. It would be a great help if someone can give me an idea of how to do that.
The Osetsky method paper: https://doi.org/10.1088/0965-0393/11/4/302
Thanks in advance.
Things that are sufficiently complex are best handled outside of LAMMPS using specialized software. Building dislocations is definitely in that category. Atomsk is one of several possible open source softwares that you could use to build dislocation structures. From the Atomsk site:
This tutorial exposes three methods to construct a ½ edge dislocation in aluminium.
