[lammps-users] Implementing cone region in Lammps

Dear lammps-users,

I made a quick implementation of a cone-shaped region. (See diff to 19
May version in attachment).

This can be used to create e.g. atomistic tethers to wires in eam.

My current implementation did not involve adding to the documentation,
or in the granular package (e.g. to create funnels). If there is a
wish for this kind of stuff, I could finish it so that it can be
implemented in a next lammps version.

Pim,

Thanks. That looks very useful. I will pass it on to Steve. It would be halpful if you could also post a modified version of doc/region.txt or doc/region.html, describing the definitions of the command arguments. Finally, it would help if you posed a small example (just an input script) so we can test it.

I just posted your region cone as a 26Jun patch.
Check the www site authors.html page. Did I get
your name right? Do you have an affiliation?

Thanks for working on this,
Steve

Hi, I will add the doc and a sample input later on, didn''t get to that yet.
Name is correct, my current affiliation is "CSI TU Darmstadt"

Thanks!
I must say that up to now the Lammps structure has been very easy to
understand, so I'll hope to implement some more projects with it.

greetings, Pim
