dear all
i do a CINEB calculation with 5 images between the two endpoints, the job stops after the first convergence of the electronic relaxations.
what is wrong in the parameters ?
my INCAR file:
#CLNEB
ISTART = 0
ICHARG = 2
IBRION = 1
POTIM = 0.3
ICHAIN = 0
IMAGES = 5
SPRING = 5
LCLIMB = .TRUE.
NSW = 5000
GGA = PE
#ISPIN = 2
PREC = Medium
ENCUT = 400
NELM = 100
NELMIN = 2
EDIFF = 1.0e4
EDIFFG = 0.05
ISMEAR = 0
SIGMA = 0.02
LWAVE = .FALSE.
LCHARG = .FALSE.
IALGO = 48
LORBIT = 11
LREAL = Auto
LVDW = .TRUE.
LVDW=.TRUE.
VDW_RADIUS=20.0 # cutoff radius
VDW_SCALING=0.75 # global scaling factor s6
VDW_D=20.0 # damping parameter d
VDW_C6=0.70 1.75 10.80 10.80 # C6 parameters (Jnm6mol?1) for each species defined in POSCAR
VDW_R0=1.342 1.452 1.562 1.562 # R0 parameters

Re: why my CINEB calculation stops after the first convergence of the electronic relaxations
It appears that vasp is not able to read the VDW_C6 parameters from the INCAR file. It looks like you specified 4 parameters when you have 5 atom types. This is not related to the NEB calculation.

O^My^God, so silly a mistake!
thanks prof.
