INITIAL_CONDITION

This card links a particular FLOW_CONDITION and TRANSPORT_CONDITION to the appropriate REGION to define an initial condition. It is set up similar to the BOUNDARY_CONDITION card, by first creating a list of flow and/or transport conditions, and then appling them to appropriate REGIONs using this card.

Required Cards:

INITIAL_CONDITION <name>
Opens the INITIAL_CONDITION block, where <string> is the name of the initial condition (name is optional).
FLOW_CONDITION <name>
If a FLOW_CONDITION has been defined, specify it here by the given name of the flow condition.
TRANSPORT_CONDITION <name>
If a TRANSPORT_CONDITION has been defined, specify it here by the given name of the transport condition.
REGION <name>
Specifies the name of the REGION that the set of flow and/or transport conditions will be applied to.
