[lammps-users] rotate block itself?

Dear all,

There is a block with cylinder shape in my simulation box, the surface is parallel to xy plane, and cylinder’s normal is parallel to z direction. Is there any way to achieve rotation of this block itself in the xy plane with respect to cylinder’s normal? Any suggestion is appreciated in advance.

Best regards,

Do you mean have it rotate during a simulation? Or do you mean
initialize it in another orientation?

If the former, then LAMMPS won't do that.
If the latter, then define the region you put atoms in with
a different orientation.
