From previous posts it seems to me that OF can only handle uniform scalars (and vectors normal to the patch) as transient boundary conditions. If this is correct, I would appreciate some guidelines from anybody who has programmed OF to use arbitrary non-uniform vector fields as transient boundary conditions.

Best regards,

non uniform BC can be handle with groovyBC, also i recommend to look at mixedBC

I have a similar but more complex probelm.I want to use a transient Non-uniform boundary condition.I have the data files of the inlet velocity for each cell for every time steps.How can I read the data files for each time step?Is there any utilities available or I have to programme these features into application?
I am a rookie to OF,any help will be appreciated.
