fix_modify AtC boundary_dynamics command


fix_modify <AtC fixID> boundary_dynamics <on|damped_harmonic|prescribed|coupled|none>
  • AtC fixID = ID of fix atc instance

  • boundary_dynamics = name of the AtC sub-command

  • on or damped_harmonic prescribed coupled none


Sets different schemes for controlling boundary atoms. on will integrate the boundary atoms using the velocity-verlet algorithm. damped_harmonic uses a mass/spring/dashpot for the boundary atoms with added arguments of the damping and spring constants followed by the ratio of the boundary type mass to the desired mass. prescribed forces the boundary atoms to follow the finite element displacement. coupled does the same.


Boundary atoms must be specified. When using swaps between internal and boundary atoms, the initial configuration must have already correctly partitioned the two.
