I am running my simulation in NPT ensemble. parameters and values for
pressure control are -
#Berendsen Pressure control
after about 500 timestep i am getting error message
ERROR: Step 10140 cell rescaling factor limited.
what may be the reason for this error? is this related to compressibility or
Thanks for help.
