Dear all,

I did a water simulation in a cubic box (30x30x30) Å and in a rectangular

box (60x60x120) and I calculated the same property of water (spin

relaxation rate constants). However, the two results I get are different to

each other. I suspect this could be a problem with PBC.

In each simulation, I used cellBasisVectors as the length of each side of

the box. i.e.

30 0 0

0 30 0

0 0 30

and

60 0 0

0 60 0

0 0 120

and when analyzing the trajectory using a tcl script in vmd, I used the

following command to unwrap the system

package require pbctools

pbc unwrap -molid $mol -all

But the result is the same as before.

I am not very confident about how pbc works in namd and how to unwrap the

trajectory properly. I would like to know whether the way I unwrapped the

trajectory is correct and some insight for the reasons to get this kind of

a result.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Monika
