[lammps-users] regarding the friction example


Why is the command compute temp/partial used instead of compute temp?
compute new mobile temp/partial 0 1 0

In addition, as the distance is 8 between hi-slab and low-slab, why are the two half-sphere so small as there radii are 8?


Since the system is translating rapidly in x, the temperature is
only computed on the y direction of atom motion (thermal).

You can expt with the sphere radii and vizzing the resulst to
see what it changes.
