[lammps-users] Heat generating material


I am looking for a way to express a heat generating material (or to give all atoms a little bit of kinetic energy every timestep). I am working with peridynamics module and am attempting to do some damage due to thermal expansion. I am quite new to lammps but have been using MD codes for a few years now. I have had a search through the manual but I was hoping for advice from the community on the best way to do this.

Thank you for any suggestions in advance,

Fix heat does this.
