[lammps-users] LJ potential parameter


I’m trying to make Cu-Zr metallic glass using LJ(12-6)potential.

I used both 12-6 and 8-4 LJ potential and calculated bulk moduluse.

In Cu case, calculated bulk moduluse is about 4 times greater than reference.
and in Zr case, calculated bulk modulus is about 10 time greater than reference…

I think the parameter value is wrong,
But i don’t know what is wrong …

If somebody had used LJ potential, can you check if my parameter is wrong or not …

The parameter which i used is listed below ( LJ 12-6 potential)

For Cu
sigma 2.27286 epsilon 0.44966

For Zr
sigma 2.81524 epsilon 0.82873

I hope anyone who use LJ potentail … can give me a advice… !!

Thanks !! :smiley:

You might want to use a better potential than LJ:
