Probably you would benefit from putting down your simulation and  
spending the next week reading. search the literature for membrane  
simulations in the absence of proteins, read it, and duplicate the  
tests for simulations matching experiment that you see.

I have read the reference quoted there and they have given the time  
evolution of area per head-group to decrease and become constant near  
that value (including last snapshot).

Is the way described in earlier post correct? According to what I have  
seen, the structure at peter tieleman's site also has dimensions  
around 62-63 angstoms and average area per lipid is qouted by them is  
also around the same.

the value of box-x and box-y i got from g_energy is also fluctuating  
b/w 6.2-6.3 nm. I want to see time evolution of area per lipid?

I want to show that the bilayer model satisfies all the experimental  
results before going further.

Any suggestion is welcome.
