A block version of the Shake method for heavy atom simulation in biological systems is presented in this paper. The method solves successively, independent blocks of constraints of small size by a Newton method. This algorithm is implemented in TAKAKAW, an efficient parallel molecular dynamics code. This method has been tested on a small system and on an ionic canal of 67671 atoms.
