[lammps-users] fix temp/csvr

Dear all,

Is there any recommendation to choose “Tdamp” in fix temp/csvr? Is $(1000*dt) a good choice for metals? I am using EAM and MEAM potentials mostly.



I suggest you try different values for Tdamp , plot the temperature vs time and then you
a) build some intuition as to what it does
b) have a sense of what is a good choice for your system

With a 1000*dt it may take a long time for the Temp to equilibrate, but whether that
matters depends on your system and how out-of-equilibrium it is.
