Jump to navigation Jump to search

Purpose

Dump some global thermodynamic quantities.

Grammar

  • This keyword only requires a single parameter, which is the output interval (number of steps) of the global thermodynamic quantities:
   dump_thermo interval
  • This keyword will produce the output file thermo.out.

Examples

To dump the global thermodynamic quantities every 1000 steps for a run, one can add

   dump_thermo 1000

before the run keyword.

Caveats

  • This keyword is not propagating. That is, its effect will not be passed from one run to the next.
