Searching for Neighbor Atoms in Large-Scale Atomistic Simulations Wednesday, 10/30/2002

2
Interatomic Force Calculation in MD Simulation A neighbor list is maintained for each atom to speed up force calculation. Searching neighboring atoms

3
MPM: No Neighbor Particle Finding

4
Interatomic Force Cut-off Radius The size of the background grid equals the cut-off radius of the interatomic force.

5
Searing the Neighbor

6
Large-scale MD Simulation

7
Dynamically Update Atoms List

8
Put Particles Into Cells %ncell is the total number of cells %np is the total number of particles %a is the size of a cell %ncelly is the number of cells in y %direction plist_c=linspace(0,0,ncell); plist_p=linspace(0,0,np); for p=1:np ix=ceil( x_p(p)/a ); iy=ceil( y_p(p)/a ); c=ncelly*(ix-1)+iy; plist_p(p)=plist_c(c); plist_c(c)=p; end
