This example demonstrates the application of different types of boundary conditions to a cube.


A simple cube mesh is generated of default side length 0.2 mm and resolution 0.l mm. This can be changed with command line parameters.

Boundary Conditions

In both experiments, the y = -0.5 \times sidelength surface is fixed with a Dirichlet boundary condition, and the y = 0.5 \times sidelength surface is either displaced with a time-varying Dirichlet boundary condition, or has a time-varying pressure applied with a Neumann boundary condition. The magnitude of these displacements/pressure can be modified on the command line.
