About pressureProfile command for non-equilibrium system.

Dear all.
 I have a simple question about command pressureProfile in the configuration file.
 From the way the pressure is calculated by NAMD, P=nkT/V- sum(Fij*Rij)/V,
 I believe its physical meaning also applies to a non-equilibrium system.
 However, the NAMD tutorial did not mention the pressure profile applicability to non-equilibrium systems.
 So does the pressure profile calculation directed by the command pressureProfile in the configuration file of NAMD apply to a non-equilbrium system, such as a system with continuous flow?
 Any experience or estimation will be greatly appreciated.
 I wish you all have a nice summer.
