[lammps-users] properties of atoms in a plane

hi all,

i am doing fluid flow simulation. i need to find out properties of atoms that crosses a plane. when we define plane with ‘region’ , ‘side in’ is default which is not desired.
is there any way to calculate properties exactly on a plane.

regards
siva

no. a plane is infinitely thin and thus there will be effectively
no atom on it since you are using discrete time steps.
what you could do is to define a box shape region.
