fix store/state command¶
fix ID group-ID store/state N input1 input2 ... keyword value ...
ID, group-ID are documented in fix command
store/state = style name of this fix command
N = store atom attributes every N steps, N = 0 for initial store only
input = one or more atom attributes
possible attributes = id, mol, type, mass, x, y, z, xs, ys, zs, xu, yu, zu, xsu, ysu, zsu, ix, iy, iz, vx, vy, vz, fx, fy, fz, q, mux, muy, muz, mu, radius, diameter, omegax, omegay, omegaz, angmomx, angmomy, angmomz, tqx, tqy, tqz, c_ID, c_ID[N], f_ID, f_ID[N], v_name, d_name, i_name
id = atom ID mol = molecule ID type = atom type mass = atom mass x,y,z = unscaled atom coordinates xs,ys,zs = scaled atom coordinates xu,yu,zu = unwrapped atom coordinates xsu,ysu,zsu = scaled unwrapped atom coordinates ix,iy,iz = box image that the atom is in vx,vy,vz = atom velocities fx,fy,fz = forces on atoms q = atom charge mux,muy,muz = orientation of dipolar atom mu = magnitued of dipole moment of atom radius,diameter = radius.diameter of spherical particle omegax,omegay,omegaz = angular velocity of spherical particle angmomx,angmomy,angmomz = angular momentum of aspherical particle tqx,tqy,tqz = torque on finite-size particles c_ID = per-atom vector calculated by a compute with ID c_ID[I] = Ith column of per-atom array calculated by a compute with ID f_ID = per-atom vector calculated by a fix with ID f_ID[I] = Ith column of per-atom array calculated by a fix with ID v_name = per-atom vector calculated by an atom-style variable with name d_name = per-atom floating point vector name, managed by fix property/atom i_name = per-atom integer vector name, managed by fix property/atom
zero or more keyword/value pairs may be appended
keyword = com
com value = yes or no
fix 1 all store/state 0 x y z fix 1 all store/state 0 xu yu zu com yes fix 2 all store/state 1000 vx vy vz
Define a fix that stores attributes for each atom in the group at the time the fix is defined. If N is 0, then the values are never updated, so this is a way of archiving an atom attribute at a given time for future use in a calculation or output. See the discussion of output commands that take fixes as inputs.
If N is not zero, then the attributes will be updated every N steps.
Actually, only atom attributes specified by keywords like xu or vy or radius are initially stored immediately at the point in your input script when the fix is defined. Attributes specified by a compute, fix, or variable are not initially stored until the first run following the fix definition begins. This is because calculating those attributes may require quantities that are not defined in between runs.
The list of possible attributes is the same as that used by the dump custom command, which describes their meaning.
If the com keyword is set to yes then the xu, yu, and zu inputs store the position of each atom relative to the center-of-mass of the group of atoms, instead of storing the absolute position.
The requested values are stored in a per-atom vector or array as discussed below. Zeroes are stored for atoms not in the specified group.
Restart, fix_modify, output, run start/stop, minimize info¶
This fix writes the per-atom values it stores to binary restart files, so that the values can be restored when a simulation is restarted. See the read_restart command for info on how to re-specify a fix in an input script that reads a restart file, so that the operation of the fix continues in an uninterrupted fashion.
When reading data from a restart, the fix command has to be specified exactly the same way as before. LAMMPS will only check whether a fix is of the same style and has the same fix ID and in case of a match will then try to initialize the fix with the data stored in the binary restart file. If the fix store/state command does not match exactly, data can be corrupted or LAMMPS may crash.
None of the fix_modify options are relevant to this fix.
If a single input is specified, this fix produces a per-atom vector. If multiple inputs are specified, a per-atom array is produced where the number of columns for each atom is the number of inputs. These can be accessed by various output commands. The per-atom values be accessed on any timestep.
The option default is com = no.
