[lammps-users] creating more than one atom in the same region


I’m relatively new to lammps. I’'m actually stuck up with this:

Can I create more than one kind of atom in a single box which is distributed randomly according to a given volume fraction?
For eg: If I want to fill a region with 10 different atoms of different size keeping the total volume of all the atoms same, how can I do it? ( I couldn’t create more than one kind of atom simultaneously using create_atoms command).

Thanks for your help.


You can use the create_atoms command multiple times. If you
are using a lattice to create atoms, you can also define different
basis atoms and assign different types to them via the basis option
in the create_atoms command.
