[lammps-users] An interesting observation

Dear all,
I was trying to do uniaxial tensile loading test of a nanostructure of a very well known metal, copper, by using the popular script as provided at

As a part of this calculation I was using 
fix 1 all npt temp 300 300 1 y 0 0 1 z 0 0 1 drag 1 

For the value of P_start and P_final as "Zero", I'm observing no fracture in the sample even after a tensile strain of 250%!!! 
But once I make those values as non-zero, e.g., 0.01, the same sample breaks/fractures at around a strain of ~40-45%.

Could anybody please enlighten this issue.
