compute smd/contact/radius command
compute ID group-ID smd/contact/radius
- ID, group-ID are documented in compute command
- smd/contact/radius = style name of this compute command
compute 1 all smd/contact/radius
Define a computation which outputs the contact radius, i.e., the radius used to prevent particles from penetrating each other. The contact radius is used only to prevent particles belonging to different physical bodies from penetrating each other. It is used by the contact pair styles, e.g., smd/hertz and smd/tri_surface.
See this PDF guide to using Smooth Mach Dynamics in LAMMPS.
The value of the contact radius will be 0.0 for particles not in the specified compute group.
This compute calculates a per-particle vector, which can be accessed by any command that uses per-particle values from a compute as input. See Section 6.15 for an overview of LAMMPS output options.
The per-particle vector values will be in distance units.
This compute is part of the USER-SMD package. It is only enabled if LAMMPS was built with that package. See the Making LAMMPS section for more info.
