[gmx-users] about sa_surface_tension

  Dear all,

when using implicit solvent models, the sa_surface_tension parameter is 
set to 2.092 kJ/mol/nm2 by default.

However in Gromacs benchmarks with dihydrofolate reductase this 
parameter is set to 2.25936.

Can someone please explain this parameter and in how far this would 
change the simulation outcome.

Kind regards,
