kinematic boundary condition
kinematic boundary condition[¦kin·ə¦mad·ik ′bau̇n·drē kən‚dish·ən]
The condition that the component of fluid velocity perpendicular to a solid boundary must vanish on the boundary itself; when the boundary is a fluid surface, the condition applies to the vector difference of velocities across the interface.

Two boundary conditions must be imposed on the free surface, namely the kinematic boundary condition and the dynamic boundary condition.
For the time integration, the second-order Adams-Bashforth method is used for the Euler equations, while the Crank-Nicolson method is used for the kinematic boundary condition at the free surface.
The kinematic boundary condition
at the flow front is incorporated as the governing equations for predicting the flow front location.
In general, the natural and kinematic boundary conditions
for a thermomechanical problem are given by
