Title: Affine mapping of the simulation cell
Post by: bahmanpbamp on June 11, 2019, 01:38:57 PM
Dear Experts,

I am going to perform the Wigner-Seit defect analysis for a particle colliding to a substrate in Z direction as per the attached model. However, as a homogeneous deformation occurs in Z direction of the box during collision , I think I should apply the "Affine mapping of the simulation cell".   So, my question is can I apply "Affine mapping of the simulation cell" without having period boundary condition in z direction?!

The boundary conditions in the model are periodic in X,Y directions and non-periodic in Z direction.

Best regards,
Bahman

Dear Bahman,

if you don't have periodic boundary conditions in z-directions and also the size of your simulation is changing than this option should not be applied.
