fix thermal/conductivity on solid material


I am wondering what is the disadvantage of using “fix thermal/conductivity” command on solid materials.

In doc page, it says this command enables calculation of thermal conductivity of fluid.

If any of you all have any case of getting bad result by using this command on sold, can you please share with me?

Thank you,

Sungae Lee

you can use it for solids as well - what doc page
are you referring to?


Thanks Steve.

I referred to LAMMPS website

Second line of description says “As described below this enables a thermal conductivity of the fluid to be calculated.”

Thank you again.

I changed fluid to material. It works for solids

(or even gases I suppose) as well.
