LAMMPS EAM potential format

Hi All,
What is the format of EAM potential? I will need to use Sutton-Chen potential and it is not implemented in LAMMPS. I will try to understand EAM and convert it to Sutton -Chen Potential format.
Thanks,
Rose

Always a good practice to use the tools available to you before asking others. Browse the archives for Qs of the same nature. Below there is one particular example related to one of my old posts. Other people have commented as well. Do your digging and burn the inertia that keeps you from investigating on your own.

The pair eam doc page describes the format of all the EAM file

variants that LAMMPS can read.

I did browsed the archives for Qs and found many things including the link you have sent and a Ni Sutton -Chen potential in GULP format. I am just curious what makes you think that I did not do my digging. Some people may just started to learn LAMMPS and it may take them longer time to connect the dots and to figure things out, but it does not mean that they should not learn how to use it or they cannot use the form to post questions.

If you did your digging then why caring what I think? The only time you
really would have to care is if I ever become the reviewer of one of your
papers.

You are absolutely right. I guess some of us who have witnessed the many Qs
on this list for a while sometimes tend to give bad cop treatment to those
that sound borderline confusing/ time wasting. Good to know you are not one
of them. In the end I was just being pragmatic and offer you a solution to
using the Sutton-Chem already implemented in GULP instead of having to face
your Lammps demons. If my answer did you suit you for whatever reason then
toss it and move on.
