compute plasticity/atom command

Syntax

compute ID group-ID plasticity/atom
  • ID, group-ID are documented in compute command

  • plasticity/atom = style name of this compute command

Examples

compute 1 all plasticity/atom

Description

Define a computation that calculates the per-atom plasticity for each atom in a group. This is a quantity relevant for Peridynamics models. See this document for an overview of LAMMPS commands for Peridynamics modeling.

The plasticity for a Peridynamic particle is the so-called consistency parameter (lambda). For elastic deformation lambda = 0, otherwise lambda > 0 for plastic deformation. For details, see (Mitchell) and the PDF doc included in the LAMMPS distribution in doc/PDF/PDLammps_EPS.pdf.

This command can be invoked for one of the Peridynamic pair styles: peri/eps.

The plasticity value will be 0.0 for atoms not in the specified compute group.

Output info

This compute calculates a per-atom vector, which can be accessed by any command that uses per-atom values from a compute as input. See the Howto output doc page for an overview of LAMMPS output options.

The per-atom vector values are unitless numbers (lambda) >= 0.0.

Restrictions

This compute is part of the PERI package. It is only enabled if LAMMPS was built with that package. See the Build package doc page for more info.

Default

none
