the edges of the crystal get very mushy but the bulk stays mostly
fixed. At higher values it does contract but is even meltier.
You're going to get surface reconstruction on all of the potentials.
Free boundaries will always relax. These relaxations may or may not be
valid reconstructions. But, they aren't unphysical, most if not all
crystals have a boundary layer of distorted crystal at the surface.
The lattice constants will not match experiment in general, you'll need
to find a paper on each potential and match to the constants that they
publish. Or, go through the process of finding your own which can be
delicate in a multidimensional space!
