I am trying to simulate a nanotube inserted into a lipid bilayer using Gromacs 4, applying an external electric field (in the direction of the z axis).
I have added this line to my input file:
E_z = 1 1.0 0
The calculations finish without problem, however I can see a big deformation both of the nanotube and also of the membrane. Is this normal? When I use a smaller electric field:
E_z = 1 0.01 0
I cannot see these deformations.
Is it usual to find deformations using high electric fields such as 1V?
Thanks a lot in advance.
