Support Forum / strain analysis- liminate homogeneous deformation kye
« on: January 14, 2019, 04:42:04 PM »
Dear Experts,

I am really confused by atomic strain analysis modifier. I cannot understand whether should I activated" eliminate homogeneous deformation " key or not?!
why should we remove homogeneous deformation? I am modeling a particle impact in z direction to a substrate.

Sorry if the question is very stupid

Best wishes,


Support Forum / Regarding analyzing crystal structures
« on: December 10, 2018, 05:34:54 PM »
Dear OVITO experts,

I am looking for a suitable technique for analyzing crystal structure of ceramic materials like Tio2 during deformation and fracture.

I have studies several existing techniques like  Centrosymmetric,  Bond-angle analysis,  Common-neighbor analysis,  Adaptive common-neighbor analysis, Voronoi analysis and Polyhedral template matching. According to  my studies,  it seems that PTM is the best choice with the highest accuracy for structure analysis. However, I cannot use this method too. Since, Tio2 lattice is Tetragonal and is not available between PTM template structures. I have this problem with other methods too actually!

So, any constructive comment in this regard is highly appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Dear OVITO experts,

I am going to use Wigner-Seitz defect analysis modifier in 2D.  But I permanently facing with this error:

" Simulation cell is degenerate in the deformed configuration"

Actually, I have changed the  Dimensionality from default 3D to 2D but the problem sill exists. So, any helpful comment is highly appreciated.

Yours Faithfully,

Support Forum / dislocation analysis

Dear experts,

I am going to apply dislocation analysis for a 2D fcc model. However, OVITO tells that it does not support 2D. So, can I make a trick and change the z positions of all atoms from 0 to 1?

any comment is highly appreciated.

Yours Sincerely,

Dear Ovitio experts,
I need to apply dislocation analysis on TiO2 rutile structure. Please let me know whether I can use Tetragonal or BCC initial structure with some modifications or not.

Yours Sincerely,

Support Forum / total strain
« on: August 15, 2018, 04:59:18 PM »
Dear OVITO experts,

As you know OVITO can calculate strain/atom. My question is whether OVITIO can also calculate total strain of the system for example in X or Y direction?
I mean can it take average value over all the strain/atom data and reports a value?

Yours Sincerely,

Support Forum / stress analysis in OVITO

Dear experts,

Please let me know whether OVITO can also calculate stress per atom ? Actually,I personally do not think so! Since, we need to access to the forces!


Dear experts,

I am looking for a method to analysis the structure of crystals in  2 dimensional . However, it seems that almost all of the atomic structure analysis modifiers are not active for 2 dimensional MD.


Dear OVITO experts,

As I now, in OVITO, we can only access to the Start and End Values of a property inside the "color coding" panel. Please let me know whether it is possible to have more values or not.

Yours Sincerely,

Dear OVITO experts,

I am going to compute "atomic strain" by OVITO from a 2D dump file(as per attached). However I face with this error:

"Simulation cell is degenerate in the deformed configuration."

Actually, I checked the box Adjust the simulation size box in the show periodic image box. But, the result is the same!

 The reference file including initial positions of atoms has also been attached.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Yours Sincerely,
