What did you set for refcoord-scaling ? How are you treating volume/pressure? Please post a full .mdp file. If you want, you can simply fix the positions and not let them move at all with freezegrps etc.

Subject: [gmx-users] position restraints


I have a simulation in which I want to keep the protein coordinates fixed. I have tried using force constraints of strength 1000, 5000, and 10000. With 5000, there are about 100-150 atoms (out of ~1700) that drift more than 0.4A away from their equilibrium positions. This number increases when I use 10000. Is this expected behavior? What can I do to prevent the equilibrium positions from drifting away more than 0.4A?
