`structuralIC(`

sets initial displacement and velocity for the entire geometry.`structuralmodel`

`structuralIC(___`

sets initial displacement and velocity for a particular geometry region using the
arguments from the previous syntax.`RegionType`

geometry. If `Sresults`

is obtained by solving a transient
structural problem, then `structuralIC`

uses the solution
`Sresults`

for the last time-step.
