create_box command


create_box xlo xhi ylo yhi zlo zhi 
xlo,xhi = box bounds in the x dimension (distance units)
ylo,yhi = box bounds in the y dimension (distance units)
zlo,zhi = box bounds in the z dimension (distance units) 


create_box 0 1 0 1 0 1
create_box 0 1 0 1 -0.5 0.5
create_box 0 10.0 0 5.0 -4.0 0.0 


Set the size of the simulation box.

For a 2d simulation, as specifed by the dimension command, zlo < 0.0 and zhi > 0.0 is required. This means the z dimensions straddle 0.0. Typical values are -0.5 and 0.5, but this is not required. See Section 6.1 of the manual for more information about 2d simulations.

For 2d axisymmetric simulations, as set by the dimension and boundary commands, the ylo setting must be 0.0. See Section 6.2 of the manual for more information about axisymmetric simulations.
