How do I set scalar boundary condition?
I have something make me confusing.
I am trying to analyze SI engine(of course, with octane)
I am using Weller-1 model with conditional enthalpy model.
Then, I got 6 scalars (C8H18, N2, O2, CO2, H2O, RVB).
I don't know the meaning of RVB but it's not a problem.
I have set initial mass fraction of initially charged AIR of scalars like below.
(C8H18:0.0637, N2: 0.7183, O2: 0.218, RVB: 1)
I've referenced theoretical fuel equivalence ratio of octane and RVB fraction as weller model tutorial.
Now, I have a question. When I set boundary scalar mass fraction of the inlet, what value I have to use for RVB?
Same as initial field? Anyway, I temporarily setted the inlet RVB mass fraction as 1 and found that combustion was successfully have occured. But I want to get a more precise information about setting RVB mass fraction.

RVB is regress variable b. It's a non-dimensional scalar variable, which has value 1 in the unburned state and 0 in the fully burned state. It is defined in the StarCD methodology volume.
Presumably your inlet stream is a mixture of fuel, oxygen and nitrogen? Assuming that the stream is completely unburned where it enters the domain, you should set the stream's value of RVB to be 1.
