Hi Lammps users,

I want to use silicon weth meam potential, and I installed the meam library. I cannot find Si.meam, so should I use SiC.meam and use NULL ?? If thats right, how can I write it ? Thanks\Mohamed

Hi Mohamed,

No, don’t use SiC.meam — instead use Ni.meam or Cu.meam and the related example problems as models of how to set up a single-element simulation. Most of the relevant parameters come from the library.meam file, which you can also edit or replace.
