Class HarmonicBC

Defined in Program listing for file kernel/src/modelingTools/HarmonicBC.hpp

class HarmonicBC : public BoundaryCondition

This class models a simple harmonic boundary conditions for prescribing the velocities in a Dynamical System.

A simple boundary condition is considered to fix a component \( j \) of the velocity vector, i.e., \( v_j(t) = a + b cos( \omega t+ \phi)\).

Public Functions

HarmonicBC(SP::UnsignedIntVector newVelocityIndices, double a, double b, double omega, double phi)


  • newVelocityIndices: the indices of the velocity subjected to prescribed velocities
  • a: constant value for additive term of the prescribed velocity
  • b: constant value for multiplicative term of the prescribed velocity
  • omega: frequency
  • phi: phase
