[lammps-users] Slave DOF


I am trying to do doing Molecular Statics in LAMMPS. Is there a way to ‘slave’ particular degrees of freedom? (DOF)

ie, I have two distinct group of atoms (lets say 1 and 2). I am trying to impose a constraint such that u_x_1=u_x_2. (where u_x is the displacement in x direction) ie to slave the DOF in one group with respect to another.

Please let me know,


No, the LAMMPS minimizer doesn't do anything like that.
It would have to be added.
