### Elmer-2Dglaciertoymodel

Posted:

**23 Mar 2015, 00:08**Hi,

I am trying to simulate the 2D glacier toy model (synthetic glacier from Reykjavik courses) with my own finite element code. But I have some

problems with the boundary conditions for the side surfaces. I have imposed u=0 (the first component of the velocity) but I do not know what is the condition for

v (the second component of the velocity). Is the stress egal to 0 in the z direction ? Can you help me, please.

Thank you in advance
