how to model the Aluminum-SiC interactions

Dear lammps users

I want to model Aluminum-SiC alloy. I would like to know how to use pair_style and pair_coeff commands.

pair_style and pair_coeff commands.

well, it is not as simple as that.

the usual procedure would require you to
obtain a completely white goat and arrange
for having it properly sacrificed in the closest
temple to the gods of MD simulations.

short of that, i recommend that you first
have a look into the relevant literature and
try to find out what type of potentials and
parameter sets have been used to model
such a system successfully in the past
and whether the properties of such potentials
would allow successful simulation of the
system that you have in mind (most classical
potentials are not very transferable, i.e. they
can only be used close to the state that
they were parameterized for).

with thusly gathered information, you can
move forward and look up the specific
lammps commands and their syntax in
the lammps manual.
