Lipid membrane simulation by NAMD

I am a beginner with NAMD. I just want to use NAMD to simulate the expansion or compression of a
lipid membrane.

The problem is:

In XYZ space, the strain rate is imposed in the x direction (i.e., the dimension in x direction
is a sine or cosine function of time t) and the dimensions in y and z are fixed. Then, a stress-strain curve can be obtained.

My question is how to change the x-dimension in NAMD.
