The fix calculates a new stable time increment for use with the SMD time integrators.
The stable time increment is based on multiple conditions. For the SPH pair styles, a CFL criterion (Courant, Friedrichs & Lewy, 1928) is evaluated, which determines the speed of sound cannot propagate further than a typical spacing between particles within a single time step to ensure no information is lost. For the contact pair styles, a linear analysis of the pair potential determines a stable maximum time step.
This fix inquires the minimum stable time increment across all particles contained in the group for which this fix is defined. An additional safety factor s_fact is applied to the time increment.

Restart, fix_modify, output, run start/stop, minimize info
Currently, no part of USER-SMD supports restarting nor minimization.
This fix is part of the USER-SMD package. It is only enabled if LAMMPS was built with that package. See the Build package doc page for more info.
