Dear Professor David,

Thank you very much for your kind reply. I use Four steps MD
simulation. The initial coordinates of one of the atoms is (38.057,
25.445, 11.095), the final coordinates after 2ns is (26.565, 19.519,
1.634). I think the changes in coodinates is too big. Maybe I should
recalculate it by using a small force constant. Thanks again.
