[lammps-users] EAM Potential File


I am trying to run some of the examples given in Lammps with copper using the EAM potential file cuu3.eam but it is giving me “Cannot open cuu3.eam file” error. If I am trying to run the MELT example what should be my path for cuu3.eam in the in.melt file? Or any other suggestion?

Potential files are in the potentials dir of the LAMMPS tarball.
You either need to copy the file you want into the dir you
run LAMMPS from, or put a path to the file in your input script.
