My name is cheng yang, and I am a graduate student at University of Science and Technology Beijing in China.Excuse me for this abrupt letter.I would like to ask some questions about the lammps. I am using MD (LAMMPS software) to find out that whether the diamond tip’s vibration have some effect on friction and the substrate is graphite. After relaxation ，we displaced a harmonic spring laterally coupled to the tip.so we connected the tip and the virtual atom through the a harmonic spring . Then the virtual atom move at a linear velocity. But I want to make the Z coordinate of the virtual atom’ s is same as tip‘s center of mass. And the order is “set atom 1802 Z V_pgtipz". The atom 1802 is the virtual atom and the v_pgtipz is the tip‘s center of mass in the z direction .But it can not realize ,that is to say,the coordinate of the virtual atom in the Z direction does not change ,so the order is invalid . I want to know the reason and whether there is another method to ralize it .
Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you.
