Periodic Boundary conditions in Cylindrical coordinates

Submitted by krishnarajkp on Tue, 03/05/2013 - 14:25

Hello all,

Thanks in advance for your time . Im trying to simulate Cylindrical Couette Granular Flows with inner cylinder rotating. But it takes lot of atoms (300000) to simulate my entire domain. hence if i can Simulate a section of the cylindrical couette (by using periodic boundary conditions in cylindrical coordinates) then i can reduce the number of atoms. Is there a possibility in LIGGGHTS or i should edit the code for my purpose. If so any suggestions or ideas are greatly appreciated and welcomed.

Thanks and regards,

Hi krishnaraj,

>>using periodic boundary conditions in cylindrical coordinates
this is not implemented at the moment. It's on our list, but not a trivial thing to do, especially in parallel
At the moment there is no schedule when this will be in the public release

are there any news relevant to this periodic boundary condition?
