Dear Bin Shen and Steve and all other lammps users
thank you for your reply, I just guess whether there is some relationship between tersoff potential and “lost atoms” error, Now I got some reply said there is no relation.
Yes, with a smaller timestep and velocity there will be no “lost atoms error” but I want to do is the simulation of failure , so even with smaller timestep and velocity, but
with a long enough time under tension, there will be also "lost atoms "error. right ?
newer to lammps, not familiar, and I don’t know what’s the next step.
thank all and I will keep improving.
