ProfileX — Space-dependent boundary condition profiles.


Subclasses are listed as they appear in the GUI and (in parentheses) as they appear in scripts.


A ProfileX object describes the shape of a boundary condition. That is, a boundary condition fixes some quantity (a Field component, for example) on a boundary and the profile of the boundary condition specifies how that quantity varies along the length of the boundary.

Profiles specified by ProfileX can depend on position, but not time.

The ContinuumProfile, ConstantProfile, and LinearProfile subclasses simply differ in how the profile is specified, with ContinuumProfile being the most general and ConstantProfile the least.
