Nodeset in Initial


It would be convenient to be able to add a nodeset in the Initial section, like in the Boundary section. For instance:
<concentration sol="1" set="NODESET" scale="UNIT"/>
Thanks for considering,

Hi Antoine,

This is a good idea, and I recently started thinking about this. There are in fact several features that could benefit from a similar organization (aside from all the initial conditions, another example is rigid node sets). (What's the scale attribute you are suggesting?)

I've started a review of the existing format, chasing down all the features that would benefit from such as organization, and propose a new file format version (probably version 2.1) in one of the next releases.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for considering it, it could sometimes reduce the size of the feb files a lot. The "scale" attribute would just be the desired value, I don't know what should be the best name. Another example is <fix bc="xy" set="NODESET">.

This is possible in FEBio format 2.0 and up.
