Hello Lin, do you know this article?
It's simple and has a fairly detailed section of the high temperature
methods. It should be a good start.
>Are there any standard procedures to perform High temperature - MD simulation?
>Where can I find the standard procedures?
I think one of the main issues you have to mind in a high T MD, is the
explicit solvent. It is possible to mantain the water liquid under a normal
pressure even at 498K, I'll search my files for the article that reviews
What water model are you using?

>Under NVT, the pressure increased dramatically.
