i'm not sure how you would do this, but I don't think it's really what you
want. averaging over trajectories that are different will probably give you
unphysical structures. what you normally want to do is average the analysis
data, not the structures.
if you want to "eliminate stochastic properties", why not average over a
period of time in your trajectory and see if it looks like what you want?
this will help decide if it's worth the effort to average over multiple
