[gmx-users] spc.itp file and flexspc.itp

 Dear Prof. Justin and Gromacs users, 
Thank you very much for the reply. I  noticed that FLEX_SPC is defined in the .top file of the bilayer simulations for CiEj systems ( in patrickfuchs/CiEj_2016H66 ). They used a modified force field known as 2016H66 with Gromacs 4.0.7. I am also trying to use it for my CiEj system with Gromacs 2016 version. Since they have achieved the lamellar region by defining the FLEX_SPC, do I have to use the same FLEX_SPC in my .top?
Could you please comment on this.
Thank you.

Have you looked at the contents of flexspc.itp? You'll note that it has 
no functional content as this was an old way of defining flexible water. 
Don't do what you have shown above. If you want flexible water, use 
"define = -DFLEXIBLE" and the normal spc.itp in your topology. Again, 
inspect that file's contents to understand what it is doing.
