[EXTERNAL] the thermal conductivity of metal

Hello Wangdan, please post these questions to the Lammps user list. Look at the two-temperature model (TTM) in the ATC package which should be appropriate for your needs assuming you have a reasonable model of electron transport for your material.

Hello,Thank you!
I argue that the TTM model in the ATC package can be used when we known the electric thermal conductivity of a metal.However,I want to solve the electric thermal conductivity of a metal by the MD or ATC package.

Regards!

MD as far as I know cannot solve the electric thermal conductivity because it is only applying Newton’s laws to point masses (i.e., atoms). This is like saying you want MD to figure out the interatomic potential. If you want to deduce the electronic thermal conductivity from first principles, do a first principles calculation.
