SPICA: Surface Property fItting Coarse grAined model

Tutorialwith MD software

Top

Several different MD softwares are useful for an MD simulation using the SPICA force field:

LAMMPS might be the first choice for the SPICA force field. GROMACS might show a better performance, though a patch file is required to make it useful. MPDyn2 was originally used to build the previous SDK force field, even though a good performance on parallel computers is not expected. MPDyn2 could be useful for analyses.
In this tutorial, we focus on LAMMPS and introduce how to prepare input files for different systems.
