I am doing a molecular dynamics simulation with FCC metals bulks in the NVT ensemble. I have to detect or study the phase-transition from solid to liquid when heating the bulk. I use a Nose-Hoover thermostat with parameters 1.0 and 3.0 ps, and use Quantum Sutton-Chen potential for interaction between the atoms.
My question is, what parameters or properties can I monitor and plot to notice the phase-transition?
I have already plotted the RDF functions according to the temperature, and I see the widening of the peaks when increasing the temperature, but are there any other properties, such as energies, that can tell me about the point of the phase-transition?
