I'm sorry if I am a bit off topic but relying on the know-how of the
lammps community is very tempting
I would like to know if you are aware of useful references about
schemes to perform simulation on non-equilibrium processes as fast
cooling/heating processes (like for example gelification).
One can already simulate these with using lammps by means of velocity
rescaling or Nose'-Hoover algorithms. Is the application of these
straightforward or some issues (take a colloid in a solvent that transfers heat slowly, so that temperature gradients that remain relevant for a while before leveling out play a role) are just put under the rug when one does so?
Thanks for your attention,
