Runtime changing of bondary conditions
Sometimes I would like to change the boundary condition on-the-fly during the iterations. There is a situation for example where I've recognised to make a small mistake in b.c., however the flow field is nearly correct and good converged.
The option "runtimeModificable" in system dictionary belongs only to numerical settings, like solvers, schemes etc. Any changing of files in "0" directory does not affect the current calculation.
The only option what I see is the solution mapping. Is there any other option (may be simpler) what I don't see now?

A simple way to do that is just to stop your simulation, imposing at the controlDict 'stopAt writeNow', and then you can change the BC in the last time folder created. To restart your simulation, you chose 'startFrom latestTime'.
Note that BC are not read from these files during the calculations, but only at the beginning, so changing them on the fly will have no effect (somebody correct me if I'm wrong).

How did you get on with the runtime changing of boundary conditions?
I am running a model that I need to switch the boundary condition from an inletOutlet to a Wall after 1.5 seconds, and then continue to convergence as a wall.
I have tried using the mapFields technique, but it doesn't seem to work - the finished model just displays garbage in Paraview when I run it.
Is there any way of altering the boundary conditions in the middle of the run, or alternatively stopping the run, changing the conditions by hand and then re-starting it?
I think I will be really stuck if I can't get this to work...
