[lammps-users] Stretch along z direction for 2d simulation

Dear all,

I have a naive or maybe a stupid question. Is it possible to use fix deform along the z direction (which has the narrowest dimension https://docs.lammps.org/Howto_2d.html) in a 2d simulation?

I have a columnar structure to simulate, and I was wondering if technically possible and physically meaningful to use 2d simulation in LAMMPS to stretch it along the z direction to see the mechanical response of the material.

Stay safe,
