[lammps-users] Effect of particle tangential damping on the simulation

Dear LAMMPS users,
What is implication of turning on and off the dampflag (whether or not to include the particle tangential damping) in the “gran/history” command for a granular simulation? Is that affects the final simulation results or it just added to attain the steady state faster by dissipating more energy?

Thanks and Regards,

I would say its a different model if you include/exclude that
term. So it depends on what effects you want to model
with your system, and the flag gives you a choice.
