Hi, Zhiping

I am sorry about my response, it is really a question about your method, it 
would be very helpful this information. 

I am a very new user of cp2k and I want to know how do you use the SMD 
model in your calculations?

Sorry again for not answering your problem. 

Thank you very much

Best regards,
