[lammps-users] NVT/NVE Ensemble for flow system

Dear LAMMPS Users and Prof. Axel,


In order to realize the poiseuille flow, generally, we build a system including fluids and medium. In most cases, we only fix the medium and impose NVT ensemble to fluids. Herein, I am confused about the choice of ensemble for flexible system.


Basically we have two choices:

1: Just give NVT ensemble to the moving part, and modify the temperature by water temperature excluding the moving direction, by the following command


compute         Twater water temp/partial 1 1 0

fix 1 movepart nvt temp 300.0 300.0 100.0

fix_modify   1 temp Twater


2. Give NVT ensemble to the flexible underlying medium to control the temperature, and meanwhile give NVE to fluids .


fix 1 surface nvt temp 300.0 300.0 100.0

fix 2 water nve


which one should be better and physically reasonable?


And I have tested these two cases, it seems that the outcome temperature from the second one gives better results.


Hope to hear from soon. Thank you very much.


Best Regards,
