NDSolve with Oblique Boundary Conditions

Posted 8 years ago

Hi everyone,

I have a question concerning the solution of PDEs with NDSolve in Mathematica 10. I am trying to solve a PDE in 2D with oblique boudary conditions. Specifically, I want the gradient of the solution in a given direction to be zero at the boundary, namely:


with d a given unit vector, say {1,1}/Sqrt[2].

However, with NeumannValue I can only demand that the gradient be zero in the direction perpendicular to the boundary:


at the boundary with n an outgoing normal to the boundary.

Does anybody know how to extend this to a general direction d rather than the normal to the boundary n?

I wanted to ask the same question! Did you find any answer elsewhere? We need the source code of NeumannValue function and want to modify it.
