Nanowire Deformation

Dear Lammps Users

I am using nanowire deformation code proposed by Mark Tschopp:
I am wondering that does surface energy contribute in this calculations (as far as boundary defined periodic)?

Kind Regards,

Sorry but this is not a “examine my input script” service forum. It is best if you study the script, run the simulation, examine/analyze the outputs, then see if the physical behavior of your interest is included or not.
