# FunctionNeumannBC

Imposes the integrated boundary condition , where is a (possibly) time and space-dependent MOOSE Function.

## Description

FunctionNeumannBC is a generalization of NeumannBC which is used for imposing flux boundary conditions on systems of partial differential equations (PDEs) where the flux is represented by a spatially- and temporally-varying MOOSE Function. That is, for a PDE of the form (1) where is the domain, and is its boundary, a FunctionNeumannBC object can be used to impose condition (3) if the function is well-defined for all relevant times and . In this case, the function parameter corresponds to a MOOSE Function object which represents the mathematical function , and the user must define one or more sidesets corresponding to the boundary subset via the boundary parameter.

C++ Type:NonlinearVariableName

Options:

Description:The name of the variable that this boundary condition applies to

• boundaryThe list of boundary IDs from the mesh where this boundary condition applies

C++ Type:std::vector

Options:

### Required Parameters

• enableTrueSet the enabled status of the MooseObject.

Default:True

C++ Type:bool

Options:

Description:Set the enabled status of the MooseObject.

• save_inThe name of auxiliary variables to save this BC's residual contributions to. Everything about that variable must match everything about this variable (the type, what blocks it's on, etc.)

C++ Type:std::vector

Options:

Description:The name of auxiliary variables to save this BC's residual contributions to. Everything about that variable must match everything about this variable (the type, what blocks it's on, etc.)

• use_displaced_meshFalseWhether or not this object should use the displaced mesh for computation. Note that in the case this is true but no displacements are provided in the Mesh block the undisplaced mesh will still be used.

Default:False

C++ Type:bool

Options:

Description:Whether or not this object should use the displaced mesh for computation. Note that in the case this is true but no displacements are provided in the Mesh block the undisplaced mesh will still be used.

Default:0

C++ Type:unsigned int

Options:

Description:The seed for the master random number generator
