Contact CHARMM-GUI Team. They are really quick to respond and troubleshoot such issues.

Subject: vmd-l: Does CHARMM-GUI Drude-Prepper input generator work for MD simulation of carbon nanotubes?

Dear all,

I have the intention to perform molecular dynamics (MD) simulation of carbon nanotubes (CNT) using the Drude polarizable force field implemented in NAMD. IŁnitially, I used CHARMM-GUI to produce a solvated CNT inputs for NAMD using Nanomaterial Modeler in CHARMM-GUI. I can run the MD simulation (using non-polarizable FF) for this system. But as soon as IŁ use these inputs (.pdb & .psf files) to produce Drude-Prepper inputs for MD simulation of polarizable force field, IŁ receive a message mentioning CHARMM was terminated abnormally with the following error. It seems that the residue TUBE is not recognized. My question is how it is recognized before (when performing MD with non-polarizable force field), but when it comes to polarizable FF the TUBE residue is not recognized?

CHARMM was terminated abnormally.
Please check the output or report<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://charmm-gui.org/?doc=contact&jobid=2723850529__;!!DZ3fjg!vkacUvSVvdO9w26Z8SWQAEqxxFT0uUzW_mvwdBr0FerznRubI8nvh8uQOaWmvdEUaQ$> this failure to the CHARMM-GUI developers.
