Dear Wien2k users,

I am using wien2k 14.2 version. I performed the LDA+U calculation (runsp_lapw -orb -cc 0.0001) for the ZnV2O4 compound (using tetragonal Antiferromagnetic structure file) with k point 40X40X40. I obtained the required energy and charge convergence criteria. In the case.scf file the value of fermi energy is 0.4903644 Ry. In the case.scf file and the total DOS calculation it shows there is energy gap of 0.330 eV (i.e. .0242 Ry) about the fermi energy. Using the case.energyup/dn file I calculated the transport properties using Boltztrap code (x_trans BoltzTraP -up -orb). The intrans file used for the calculation is as follows:

after the boltztrap calculation there is no gap obtained in case.outputtrans file. If I used the value of Fermienergy a bit more in the intrans file which lies in the band gap as observed in DOS plot, still we don't get any gap in the case.outputtrans file. May I know the reason why we are unable to get the gap in outputtrans file. The below outputtrans file is correspond to the fermienergy 0.49036, 0.49536 and 0.502100 Ry
