fix 1 all sph


Perform time integration to update position, velocity, internal energy and local density for atoms in the group each timestep. This fix is needed to time-integrate SPH systems where particles carry internal variables such as internal energy. SPH stands for Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics.

See this PDF guide to using SPH in LAMMPS.

Restart, fix_modify, output, run start/stop, minimize info

No information about this fix is written to binary restart files. None of the fix_modify options are relevant to this fix. No global or per-atom quantities are stored by this fix for access by various output commands. No parameter of this fix can be used with the start/stop keywords of the run command. This fix is not invoked during energy minimization.


This fix is part of the USER-SPH package. It is only enabled if LAMMPS was built with that package. See the Build package doc page for more info.
