test area method to calculate surface tension

Dear all,

I want to calculate surface tension by test area simulation method.

Guy J. Gloor, George Jackson, Felipe J. Blas and Enrique de Miguel "Test-area simulation method for the direct determination of the interfacial tension of systems with continuous or discontinuous potentials", Journal of Chemical Physics 123 134703 (2005)<http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.2038827>

This method needs to perturbate the interfacial area a little bit. I can only find tutorials on free energy perturbation. Does anyone know if namd can do test-area method?

Thanks in advance,

Yan Shen
