According to the description of "useFlexibleCell", if it is set to be "yes", then NAMD allows the three orthogonal dimensions of the periodic cell to fluctuate independently.
What will happen, if I set it to be "no"?
The three orthogonal dimensions of the periodic cell will not fluctuate?
Or they will fluctuate dependently?
It is important for my NPT simulation.
