Re: [lammps-users] Calculation density of water in nanotube

# Re: [lammps-users] Calculation density of water in nanotube

i'll add two more items to julien's list:
- what is the density change for a bulk water system of the same water potential? most classical water potentials are particularly bad at getting the experimental behavior around the melting point right.
- as an indirect measure consider the following: does the number of water molecules inside the nanotube change? does the diameter of the nanotube change?

and to emphasize his last point:
unless the nanotube has a sufficient diameter, you cannot automatically expect bulk-like behavior from whatever is in there. considering the popularity of nanotubes over the last 20+ years, there must be a wealth of publications on the subject. a proper and sufficiently deep study of the published literature is thus strongly recommended. don't expect that a post to a mailing list can serve as a sufficient replacement.

First of all, as you described you issues, they are not Lammps related

Not enough information (type and succession of simulations, exact
procedure,...) to know from where you "problem" comes.

If it is "inside" the NT (e.g. no interface water/vacuum), using a
Voronoi approach might be relevant.

yes. But keep in mind that a density is a volume averaged quantity. So a
minimum volume has to be considered to make it consistent.
