Version did not have the Polarizability variable for each nonbonded atom type and had a typo in the Number of One-Five types label. Version included a coefficient for the 'Nonbonded Potential only' Torsion style that was not used for anything. Version included a third term for the 'Simple Harmonic Potential' Torsion style that was not used.

Version 9: had a slightly different potential for the 9 bending angle style. Version 8: did not allow the embedding density to be dependent upon both atoms in the pair. Version 7: did not have any One-Five interaction information. Also did not contain the bond increment information. Version 5: used the old format of specifying the potential form as an integer instead of as a text string Version 4: had a completely separate file format for the Embedded Atom Method potential.

This has now been incorporated into a single version. The nbcoeffs for the implicit solvation potential used a different format in this version and is no longer compatable with current versions. Version 3: allowed the specification of multiple atoms with the same nonbond parameters and did not utilize the vibration, angle, and torsion name definations. Version 3 and earlier are no longer valid inputs into Towhee. Version 2: used to allow the specification of multiple force fields for a single set of parameters.

This feature was made obsolete by other changes in the code and was removed in version 3. Version 1: did not have the Cross Term Logical variable. This documentation is accurate for version 3. However, certain special combination cases are also allowed. This section is repeated once for each of the Number of Nonbonded Types. These numbers must run from 1 to the Number of Nonbonded Types. The following set of variables are repeated once for each atom type pair represented here. If the ' Classical Mixrule ' is 'Explicit' then there are multiple listings interaction of this Atom Type Number with itself and with all other atoms that have a larger Atom Type Number.

For any other value of the ' Classical Mixrule ' there is only a single listing interaction of this Atom Type Number with itself. This is the style of the EAM pair interaction for this combination of atom types. Currently supported options are listed here.

### A Documentation

This is only listed for tabular potentials. These are listed with one coefficient per line. If the ' Classical Mixrule ' is 'Explicit' then the cross terms must be explicitly declared for all interactions of this atom type with any atom type that has a larger Atom Type Number. Otherwise the nonbonded coefficients are listed only for self-interaction and the mixing rule will set the cross terms. End of the section that is repeated based on the Number of Atom Type Pairs. The density contributed to all of the other atom types is listed here for the current atom type. There are several options currently supported by Towhee.

The format is a bit clumsy as the first line contains a dummy value and then the A prefactor arbitrary units. Two values on a single line. Atom type and number of lines of embedding function coefficients.

The style of the EAM embedding function for this atom type. Currently supported options are listed below. The values used to determine the embedding function energy. End of the special 'Embedded Atom Method' section. The bond pattern is used with configurational-bias moves that utilize a non-uniform generation of the bond angles and dihedrals. See the configurational-bias manual for more information. Set to the word 'null' if you do not want to use this feature. This value is zero for most atom types, but can take on different values for ionic systems. These are listed in that order, one per line.

End of the section that is repeated based on the Number of Nonbonded Types. This section is repeated once for each of the Number of Bonded Terms 'Bond Type Number' a16 [integer] The number coresponding to the bond type.

## The Consistent Force Field

Torsion energy, in order to reflect differing hybridizations about the bonded atoms, must contain one-, two-, and threefold periodic terms:. Finally, the nonbond energy between atoms in different molecules or between atoms separated by three or more bonded atoms is given by the sum of the Coulombic electrostatic interaction and a van der Waals energy of the form:.

The Hartree-Fock method, and to a lesser extent other quantum mechanical methods, results in systematic deviations from experiment. For example, bond lengths tend to be too short and bond-stretching vibrational frequencies too high [11]. However, by comparison with experimental gas-phase molecular structures and vibrational frequencies, these deviations may be compensated for.

In general, the energy expression may be scaled using five constant factors, one for each of the classes of energy terms: bonds, angles, torsion angles, out-of-planes and all coupling terms [12]. The scaled energy is then:. The reference values b0 and q0 are also adjusted to fit experimental data. All these values may differ among different types of bonds, bond angles, and torsion angles.

For the special case of hydrocarbons, the corrections are especially well determined by gas-phase measurements. For hydrocarbons, the best values of the scale factors are:. Although the use of the quantum calculation greatly amplifies the available data so that only a few such corrections are necessary for the complete Class II forcefield, for the majority of functional groups molecular types no accurate gas-phase data are available. However, the Sb, Stheta, Sphi, and Sc constants are transferrable among different types of bonds, bond angles, and torsion angles.

Therefore, the same scale factors are used in Eq. In general, the reference values b0 and theta0 are determined from high-level quantum mechanical calculations on the model compounds. Table 1 shows the accuracy of the CFF forcefield for several common classes of molecules, compared with experimental gas-phase results. Table 1.

Table of contents 1. Exotic Species. Force fields are at best designed to be self-consistent, and will not typically work well with other force fields. If you simulate part of your system with one force field and another part with a different force field which is not parameterized with the first force field in mind, your results will probably be questionable, and hopefully reviewers will be concerned.

Pick a force field. Use that force field. If you need to develop new parameters, derive them in a manner consistent with how the rest of the force field was originally derived , which means that you will need to review the original literature. There isn't a single right way to derive force field parameters; what you need is to derive parameters that are consistent with the rest of the force field.

How you go about doing this depends on which force field you want to use. Some suggestions for automated approaches can be found here. Attach file Files 0.
