1) NAMD GBIS does not have a SASA term.
2) NAMD internally loads a certain set of radii, which corresponds to
"PBradii bondi", users cannot change this.

Dear NAMD users,
I'd run a Generalized Born Implicit Solvent MD with AMBER force-field.
I've two question related to the method:

1) In the AMBER user manual where this method is described, it is
cited a Solvent Accessible Surface dependent term, but I don't find
any related term in the NAMD user guide. How is treated this term?

2) In the AMBER manual, the authors say:

     With this option, you should use the LEaP command "set default
PBradii mbondi2" or "set default PBradii bondi" to prepare the prmtop

     Is It true for NAMD?
