I have to implement a BC in the form:

T = -A(T) * dT/dn + B

where B is not function of T.

I examined the mixedFvPatchField, but I've some doubt on how to adapt it to my case. What is it's analytical expression?

In the evaluate function it says:

Field<type>::operator=
(
valueFraction_*refValue_
+
(1.0 - valueFraction_)*
(
this->patchInternalField()
+ refGrad_/this->patch().deltaCoeffs()
)
);

The comment in the code says it calculates the field on the patch, but, if so, why does the patchInternalField is present?
Does this mean the BC is implemented in the following form?

T = valueFraction*refValue + (1-refValue)(T + refGrad/DeltaCoeff)

Thanks in advance,
Alberto

I answer to myself: the patchInternalField is present because to calculate the field it's necessary to know the value in the cell centre.

Sorry, I confused it...I shouldn't post a question when sleepy :-))

r2d2 is on a distinguished road
Hi,
How can one access/modify the value of "valueFraction" in a mixed bc at runtime?
So if my U boundary value at a patch cell face checks against some given value (in this first case itīs a zero gradient bc <=> valueFraction = 0) then I want to switch valueFraction to 1 (known value) and set the value of U at the patch to the value I checked against. U bc, are declared as nonuniform lists on that patch (and of course change the bc for pressure accordingly).
Is this possible?
Cheers,
Radu
