Hi John,


as far as I know there’s no reflective boundaries implemented in NAMD, so if
not using periodic boundary condition, the waters will diffuse away. But you
can stress the box while using a barostat algorithm. Depending on what you
want to do, you could be interested in the following:








Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Betreff: namd-l: Simulation Box Deformation


Hello Users,

I am wondering if it is possible to deform the simulation box in order to
calculate uniaxel stress, either in compression or tension, and output the
pressure on the walls of the simulation box? If so, what part of the
documentation should I look to figure this out? This is to calculate
mechanical response of a new water model.
