stress analysis in OVITO
« on: July 18, 2018, 10:41:19 AM »
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!

Yes, exactly. Stress is a quantity derived from the interatomic forces. That is something Ovito doesn't know about, and you need to use a molecular dynamics simulation code to obtain the atomic-level stresses.
