compute edpd/temp/atom command


compute ID group-ID edpd/temp/atom
  • ID, group-ID are documented in compute command

  • edpd/temp/atom = style name of this compute command


compute 1 all edpd/temp/atom


Define a computation that calculates the per-atom temperature for each eDPD particle in a group.

The temperature is a local temperature derived from the internal energy of each eDPD particle based on the local equilibrium hypothesis. For more details please see (Espanol1997) and (Li2014).

Output info

This compute calculates a per-atom vector, which can be accessed by any command that uses per-atom values from a compute as input. See the Howto output page for an overview of LAMMPS output options.

The per-atom vector values will be in temperature units.


This compute is part of the DPD-MESO package. It is only enabled if LAMMPS was built with that package. See the Build package page for more info.
