Tensile deformation

Dear all,

I am deforming the material by loading along z axis with strain rate 10^8. Is it possible to apply stress (specify stress tensor) and deform instead of specifying the strain rate?.

With regards,

Kamalakshi

for a periodic system, ​you can run with fix npt coupled to the periodic
dimension only and apply a pressure.
otherwise you can use fix setforce to apply a force which is connected to
the pressure by the force per area relation.

axel.​

Thank you, I will try to implement this.
