The tool uses the parallel molecular dynamics simulator LAMMPS to model shock loading of various materials. Pre-built examples demonstrate various shock simulation techniques using all-atom and coarse grain approaches in metals and molecular materials. Users have full control of the input parameters and can study the shock process of interest to them.
