I'm having trouble running a basic aluminum simulation using the EAM pair_style and either alu9 or alvtr.eam potential files. Lattice lengths at or near 0.4032nm crash the simulation after 1 timestep (the energy is hugely attractive). For FCC lengths larger than 0.7nm the system is very "gas like", perhaps thats the EAM cutoff coming into effect? Thanks.
