[lammps-users] Using lammps's compute heat flux

Dear All,

I am using lammps to confirm the result of another simulation. I need to create a temperature gradient in x direction and measure the heat flux. I have attached my lammps code. Am I correct in only measuring q over the two regions that I am thermostatting and then finding the difference? Lammps results seem to be an order of magnitude higher than what I get from my other code or Fourier's law. I would really appreciate your help.

Regards,

Rambod
