[lammps-users] About the mixing of eam potential files

Hello everyone:

From the command's documentation of pair_style_eam .There is a sentence "For the alloy case LAMMPS mixes the single-element potentials to produce alloy potentials, the same way that DYNAMO does."

It means if I get the Al potential file and Cu potential file, then I can simulate the AlCu alloy system . Is that correct?

Thank you for replying to my question.

Best Regard

You're correct. The pair_style eam can do alloys via something like:

pair_coeff 1 1 alu3.eam
pair_coeff 2 2 cuu3.eam
