Hello all,

I have been trying to implement a time varying traction BC for my FSI simulation. I want the traction output to be just in one direction say (x 0 0) and x will be calculated as a scalar from a formula at every time step. How do I specify this in the Member Functions of the .C file in the BC??

Also, the formula has a parameter velocity which will be read at every time step on a particular patch. How do I pick the values on the particular patch??

Is there any documentation related to this?

Thank you in advance
