Dear Dr. Axel Kohlmeyer, Dr. Steve Plimpton and LAMMPS Users,
Hello Dr. Kohlmeyer and Dr. Plimpton. Once again, I am deeply grateful for your many advices on LAMMPS during your busy schedule.
I currently have a data file where the bead coordinates (that constitute polymer chains) are unwrapped across the periodic boundaries.
However, when I run an uniaxial elongation MD simulation that reads this data file, I obtain a message: WARNING: Inconsistent image flags (…/domain.cpp:786)
I would like to ask why this warning message appears when my bead coordinates in the original data file are unwrapped across all periodic boundaries. I am thinking that image flags should not come into play because the coordinates are not wrapped into the simulation box.
I have attached a small version of the data file and a script that performs a simple MD run that replicates this WARNING message.
Thank you so much for your time.
