Our simulation is a polymer binder explosive system contained 880 TATB

the DPD methods to investigate the effect of temperature change after
impact. The conservative potential, to depict the interactions between
beads 0 and 1 and predict the thermodynamics of system, can be described
by lennard-jones that contained 6 parameters (ε, σ, r_cut , c_shift and
r_off , as showed in ESPresSo user's guide). Therefore, to construct our
simulation model, we have to choose the correct parameters of
lennard-jones potential. Our question is that how to determine the 6
parameters and make sure that they are suitable to describe the
interactions between beads 0 and 1.


I don't know the definite answer to that question, unfortunately. Unless
anybody on this mailing list has incidentally come across your system,
which is unlikely, you will have to check the literature on
coarse-grained models for your specific molecules.

Another thing is to note that DPD typically generates (equilibrium)
thermodynamics of the NVT ensemble. Although there have been efforts to
implement energy conservation in DPD and SPH, I am not quite sure how
accurate temperature changes and heat transport can be captured. Be sure
to check your results carefully.
