7.3 Initial Conditions
For dynamic problems, the user can define initial conditions in a similar way as boundary conditions. First, select the part, surface, edge or node to which you want to apply the initial condition. Then, from the Physics menu, select “Initial Conditions” to open the Initial Conditions dialog box. This dialog box presents a list of available initial conditions that can be applied to the current selection.
First, enter a name for the initial condition or accept the default. Then, select the step to which this initial condition needs to be applied. Next, select the initial condition from the list of available choices. The following sections describe the initial conditions in more detail.
