 Region boundary conditions

Detailed Description

This group contains OpenFOAM boundary condition types. All conditions are derived from the base Foam::fvPatchField class. Patch values are typically updated using the virtual functions

The difference between the methods is based on when the patch values are updated. When the condition is applied to a solution variable, the call to updateCoeffs() occurs as a preliminary step of the <matrix>.solve(). The evaluate() method is invoked after, or independent of the matrix solve, via a call to <field>.correctBoundaryConditions().
