OOF2: The Manual


ProfileXT — Space- and time-dependent boundary condition profiles.


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


A ProfileXT 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 ProfileXT can depend on both position and time.

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