[lammps-users] eam/alloy file generation

Hi lammps user

As per the lammps manual
“Unlike the effective charge array Z® in funcfl files, the tabulated values for each phi function are listed in setfl files directly as r*phi (in units of eV-Angstroms), since they are for atom pairs.”

As we are having the pair-wise interaction (phi) which is function of r_ij.

so while creating any eam/alloy potential file, in pairwise interaction section,wether we have to take pair potential phi®i.e. (eV) only or r*phi® i.e. (eV-Angstrom) as input.

Kindly suggest me in this regards



As the manual says, list them in the file as r*phi
