Dear All,

I need to model the temperature distribution in a semi-infinite medium. Having four patches of left, right, top, and bottom, I put the left wall at fixed value boundary condition. I understand that boundary conditions for top and bottom should be zeroGradient. But what about left? How I can mimic infinite medium in the x direction.
