Hi, everyone
I use icofoam solver for simulation. I want to apply the boundary condition that the values such as pressure etc. vary with coordinate. For example, on left boundary in 2d simulation(x=0, y0<=y<=yn), I have specified an input file for the pressure value.
the format for the input file is:

y0 p0
y1 p1
y2 p2
yN pN

How can I patch it on the boundary?

If the values don't change, just use a fixedValue boundary condition. Use setFields or funkySetFields to specify the profile.
