Hi all

Here in openFoam 1.6 for simulation of flow using molecular Dynamic method we have as default the simplified "BERENDSEN" method, in my run i set the "Target temperature" to 300K but the simulation converges to 1020K !!! resulting in much lower density than anticipated. How can i make sure the thermostat is working or not? Is there any reasons for this high deviation of target and the measuredTemperature???

Kind Regards
