OOF2: The Manual

6.2.158. OOF.Mesh.Boundary_Conditions

Create and manipulate boundary conditions on Meshes.

This menu contains commands for creating, copying, renaming, and deleting boundary conditions in Meshes.

OOF2 provides five kinds of boundary conditions:

  • Dirichlet boundary conditions set the values of Field components.
  • Neumann boundary conditions set the values of Flux components.
  • Floating boundary conditions set the values of Field components, but only up to an unspecified offset.
  • Generalized Force boundary conditions set the forces on a set of nodes.
  • Periodic boundary conditions set the values of Field components for two periodic edge boundaries to be equal.

See the discussions of each type of condition in the BC section.

Boundary conditions can be applied to a Mesh only at boundaries that have been defined in the Skeleton from which the Mesh was derived. The Fields and Equations referred to in the boundary conditions need to be active.
