Two-Temperature model for laser ablation

Dear LAMMPS user,

I am doing project on Laser Shock peening(stainless steel), here I am applying laser energy to the system, heat is generated around 10000 C, and this heat is interact with the system and produces more no.of defects.

So, I am doing same thing in the LAMMPS (MD) ,by using “fix ttm”. Here i am applying heat energy , this heat is transfer to electrons and ions.So for this I can choose the metal units, boundary conditions and parameters(electronic specific heat,electrons density,thermal conductivity,electron velocity,electrons - ions interaction and electronic stopping coefficient) how can calculate these parameters.how we choose the grid points and temperature.

I have read LAMMPS documents but, I am not understand, Can any bady help me.
