Handling Boundary Conditions
The following boundary conditions can be handled for scalar u:
on the boundary
is the outward unit normal and g
, and r
can be complex valued functions of x and y defined on
. For the nonlinear PDE, the coefficients may depend on u
. For time-dependent problems, the coefficients may also depend on t
. For PDE systems, Dirichlet, generalized Neumann, and mixed boundary conditions are supported.
Visualization tools provide multiple ways to plot results. A contour plot with gradient arrows shows the temperature and heat flux. The temperature gradient is displayed using 3-D plotting tools.
