[lammps-users] hybrid bond and dpd

Dear Lammps Users,

If I use atom_style hybrid bond dpd, then should I use fix nve and fix temp/rescale together?
I know that dpd does the thermostatting. So if dpd is used alone, I should use fix nve only.
But what if I have bond also?
I had tried putting only fix nve, but then the temperature is slightly higher then the desired
temperature (I have fixed it to 1.0 but getting 1.1).


You could try fix temp/rescale only on the bonded atoms.
You'll have to expt with using thermostats on various parts
of your system, since its a hybrid model. You can
also use compute temp to look at the T of different components
of the system.
