What are the Initial conditions in ABAQUS?

Initial conditions:
Overview: Initial conditions are specified for particular nodes or elements, as appropriate. The data can be provided directly; in an external input file; or, in some cases, by a user subroutine or by the results or output database file from a previous Abaqus analysis.
