Dear Justin

Thank you for reply,

I want to simulation of water freezing, my condition:

pressure=300 bar and T=240 k , number 1656, run time= 100ns,

I can not see regular structure of ice by MD simulation or by gromacs?

In your opinion, if i want this structure of ice for my simulation,
What can i do?

The freezing point of a water model for MD simulation is not necessarily equal
to the actual freezing point of water.  See, for instance
http://iopscience.iop.org/0953-8984/17/45/013/pdf/cm5_45_013.pdf.  There are
probably other papers, as well, but one can find this easily by Googling
"freezing point of SPC water."
