Hi Arun,

I didn't know box_relax offered a Ptarget keyword. Thank you I'll try it.

Hi Jonathan 

The following command may be helpful.

Hi all,

At the end of an NPT relaxation, before switching to NVE (and fixing the volume), I'd like to make sure that I fix the volume corresponding to the pressure I was aiming for during the NPT. In other words I'd like to avoid starting my NVE production with a volume that corresponds to the maximum or minimum of the pressure curve, which fluctuates a lot in MD (for small systems at least).

The same concern may arrise when thermostatting and I think some people impose the temperature at the end of the thermalization with:

velocity all scale ${target_temperature}

Similarly, is there a command that I could call at the end of an NPT run and that would change the volume to the one corresponding to the target pressure?
