## Description

The *class2* dihedral style uses the potential

where Ed is the dihedral term, Embt is a middle-bond-torsion term, Eebt is an end-bond-torsion term, Eat is an angle-torsion term, Eaat is an angle-angle-torsion term, and Ebb13 is a bond-bond-13 term.

Theta1 and theta2 are equilibrium angles and r1 r2 r3 are equilibrium bond lengths.

See (Sun) for a description of the COMPASS class2 force field.

Coefficients for the Ed, Embt, Eebt, Eat, Eaat, and Ebb13 formulas
must be defined for each dihedral type via the
*dihedral_coeff* command as in the example above,
or in the data file or restart files read by the
*read_data* or *read_restart*
commands.

These are the 6 coefficients for the Ed formula:

- K1 (energy)
- phi1 (degrees)
- K2 (energy)
- phi2 (degrees)
- K3 (energy)
- phi3 (degrees)

For the Embt formula, each line in a
*dihedral_coeff* command in the input script lists
5 coefficients, the first of which is “mbt” to indicate they are
MiddleBondTorsion coefficients. In a data file, these coefficients
should be listed under a “MiddleBondTorsion Coeffs” heading and you
must leave out the “mbt”, i.e. only list 4 coefficients after the
dihedral type.

- mbt
- A1 (energy/distance)
- A2 (energy/distance)
- A3 (energy/distance)
- r2 (distance)

For the Eebt formula, each line in a
*dihedral_coeff* command in the input script lists
9 coefficients, the first of which is “ebt” to indicate they are
EndBondTorsion coefficients. In a data file, these coefficients
should be listed under a “EndBondTorsion Coeffs” heading and you must
leave out the “ebt”, i.e. only list 8 coefficients after the dihedral
type.

- ebt
- B1 (energy/distance)
- B2 (energy/distance)
- B3 (energy/distance)
- C1 (energy/distance)
- C2 (energy/distance)
- C3 (energy/distance)
- r1 (distance)
- r3 (distance)

For the Eat formula, each line in a
*dihedral_coeff* command in the input script lists
9 coefficients, the first of which is “at” to indicate they are
AngleTorsion coefficients. In a data file, these coefficients should
be listed under a “AngleTorsion Coeffs” heading and you must leave out
the “at”, i.e. only list 8 coefficients after the dihedral type.

- at
- D1 (energy/radian)
- D2 (energy/radian)
- D3 (energy/radian)
- E1 (energy/radian)
- E2 (energy/radian)
- E3 (energy/radian)
- theta1 (degrees)
- theta2 (degrees)

Theta1 and theta2 are specified in degrees, but LAMMPS converts them to radians internally; hence the units of D and E are in energy/radian.

For the Eaat formula, each line in a
*dihedral_coeff* command in the input script lists
4 coefficients, the first of which is “aat” to indicate they are
AngleAngleTorsion coefficients. In a data file, these coefficients
should be listed under a “AngleAngleTorsion Coeffs” heading and you
must leave out the “aat”, i.e. only list 3 coefficients after the
dihedral type.

- aat
- M (energy/radian^2)
- theta1 (degrees)
- theta2 (degrees)

Theta1 and theta2 are specified in degrees, but LAMMPS converts them to radians internally; hence the units of M are in energy/radian^2.

For the Ebb13 formula, each line in a
*dihedral_coeff* command in the input script lists
4 coefficients, the first of which is “bb13” to indicate they are
BondBond13 coefficients. In a data file, these coefficients should be
listed under a “BondBond13 Coeffs” heading and you must leave out the
“bb13”, i.e. only list 3 coefficients after the dihedral type.

- bb13
- N (energy/distance^2)
- r1 (distance)
- r3 (distance)

Styles with a *gpu*, *intel*, *kk*, *omp*, or *opt* suffix are
functionally the same as the corresponding style without the suffix.
They have been optimized to run faster, depending on your available
hardware, as discussed in *Section 5*
of the manual. The accelerated styles take the same arguments and
should produce the same results, except for round-off and precision
issues.

These accelerated styles are part of the GPU, USER-INTEL, KOKKOS, USER-OMP and OPT packages, respectively. They are only enabled if LAMMPS was built with those packages. See the Making LAMMPS section for more info.

You can specify the accelerated styles explicitly in your input script
by including their suffix, or you can use the -suffix command-line switch when you invoke LAMMPS, or you can
use the *suffix* command in your input script.

See *Section 5* of the manual for
more instructions on how to use the accelerated styles effectively.

## Restrictions

This dihedral style can only be used if LAMMPS was built with the CLASS2 package. See the Making LAMMPS section for more info on packages.
