tensile test

Hi, i want to have a test of tensile behavior of metal. What is the best
method for simulation of tensile test using LAMMPS.

Can you give me a code example if you have experience in tensile test
simulation? Sometimes I am unsure the order I used is right.

Thanks

the best method is the one that you understand well and can use correctly. :wink:

have you checked out the tutorial material linked to by the Tutorials
link on the LAMMPS homepage?

if you are unsure, particularly about something that is rather
fundamental to your work, you should make some experiments to figure
out is the right way rather than just copying what somebody else did.
it also helps to start by reproducing the calculations of some simple
systems with published results. this way you have an earned confidence
in what you are doing once you are moving on to new systems. otherwise
you can never be certain....
