Dump the atomic velocities to the velocity.out output file.


dump_velocity <interval> [{optional_args}]

Here, the interval parameter is the output interval (number of steps) of the atomic velocities. At the moment, the only optional argument (optional_args) is group. The option group shoud have two parameters:

group <grouping_method> <group_id>

which means only dumping velocities of atoms in group group_id within the grouping method grouping_method. If this option is not used, velocities will be dumped for all the atoms.


Example 1

To dump all the velocities every 10 steps for a run, one can add:

dump_velocity 10

before the run keyword.

Example 2

Similar to the above example, but only for atoms in group 1 within grouping method 2:

dump_velocity 10 group 2 1
