Hi

I would guess that your calculation is not yet converged
with respect to

1) the basis set
2) the k-points. I would use a small unit cell and then
   the MULTIPLE_UNIT_CELL keyword to check for convergence
3) the cutoff, you are probably close here (REL_CUTOFF 80, just to be sure)
   I would still use the REF_CELL keyword in order to do constant
   number of grid point calculations
4) the dispersion correction will change the reference PBE value

regards

Juerg

Dear Juerg, 

Thanks for your answer.
1) the PBE value for B is 89 GPa.
2) I also tried with higher cutoff and REF_CUTOFF, but it didn't change.

 Hi
 
 two things to do:
 1) What is the official PBE value for this quantity?
 2) Use a REF_CELL and a high enough cutoff (has to be tested)
    in order to get a smooth enough pressure curve
 
 regards

 Hi all, 
 
 I simulated the silicon with 64 atoms and calculated the energy-volume plot and fitted with murnaghan.
 I found the lattice parameter 5.48 A ( lattice parameter in experiment is 5.44 A), That is OK but the bulk modulus is 63 GPa that is very low. (B_exp = 100 GPa)
 I really don' t know why cp2k gets B so low???
 
 I tried with DZVP basis set and PBE functional with 280 Ryd cut off for density.
 I also checked with TZVP, it is not changing so much. It is 66 GPa.
 Can anybody help me with that?
 You can find my inputfile in below.
