Detailed Description

This class wraps another UnsteadySolver derived class, and compares the results of timestepping with deltat and timestepping with 2*deltat to adjust future timestep lengths.

Currently this class only works on fully coupled Systems

This class is part of the new DifferentiableSystem framework, which is still experimental. Users of this framework should beware of bugs and future API changes.

Member Function Documentation

◆ adjoint_advance_timestep()

virtual void libMesh::UnsteadySolver::adjoint_advance_timestep ( )
overridevirtualinherited

This method advances the adjoint solution to the previous timestep, after an adjoint_solve() has been performed.

This will be done before every UnsteadySolver::adjoint_solve().

Reimplemented from libMesh::TimeSolver.

Reimplemented in libMesh::NewmarkSolver.

◆ advance_timestep()

virtual void libMesh::AdaptiveTimeSolver::advance_timestep ( )
overridevirtual

This method advances the solution to the next timestep, after a solve() has been performed.

Often this will be done after every UnsteadySolver::solve(), but adaptive mesh refinement and/or adaptive time step selection may require some solve() steps to be repeated.

Reimplemented from libMesh::UnsteadySolver.

◆ before_timestep()

virtual void libMesh::TimeSolver::before_timestep ( )
virtualinherited

This method is for subclasses or users to override to do arbitrary processing between timesteps.

Definition at line 167 of file time_solver.h.

◆ calculate_norm()

virtual Real libMesh::AdaptiveTimeSolver::calculate_norm ( System ,
NumericVector< Number > &   
)
protectedvirtual

A helper function to calculate error norms.

◆ compute_second_order_eqns()

bool libMesh::FirstOrderUnsteadySolver::compute_second_order_eqns ( bool  compute_jacobian,
DiffContext c 
)
protectedinherited

If there are second order variables, then we need to compute their residual equations and corresponding Jacobian.

The residual equation will simply be $ \dot{u} - v = 0 $, where $ u $ is the second order variable add by the user and $ v $ is the variable added by the time-solver as the "velocity" variable.

overridevirtual

staticinherited

virtual Real libMesh::UnsteadySolver::du ( const SystemNorm norm) const
overridevirtualinherited

Computes the size of ||u^{n+1} - u^{n}|| in some norm.

Note
While you can always call this function, its result may or may not be very meaningful. For example, if you call this function right after calling advance_timestep() then you'll get a result of zero since old_nonlinear_solution is set equal to nonlinear_solution in this function.

std::vector<float> libMesh::AdaptiveTimeSolver::component_scale

If component_norms is non-empty, each variable's contribution to the error of a system will also be scaled by component_scale[var], unless component_scale is empty in which case all variables will be weighted equally.

protectedinherited

A bool that will be true the first time solve() is called, and false thereafter.

Definition at line 162 of file unsteady_solver.h.

◆ global_tolerance

bool libMesh::AdaptiveTimeSolver::global_tolerance

This flag, which is true by default, grows (shrinks) the timestep based on the expected global accuracy of the timestepping scheme.

Global in this sense means the cumulative final-time accuracy of the scheme. For example, the backward Euler scheme's truncation error is locally of order 2, so that after N timesteps of size deltat, the result is first-order accurate. If you set this to false, you can grow (shrink) your timestep based on the local accuracy rather than the global accuracy of the core TimeSolver.

Note
By setting this value to false you may fail to achieve the predicted convergence in time of the underlying method, however it may be possible to get more fine-grained control over step sizes as well.

Definition at line 198 of file adaptive_time_solver.h.

◆ last_deltat

Real libMesh::AdaptiveTimeSolver::last_deltat
protected

We need to store the value of the last deltat used, so that advance_timestep() will increment the system time correctly.

Definition at line 207 of file adaptive_time_solver.h.

◆ max_deltat

Real libMesh::AdaptiveTimeSolver::max_deltat

Do not allow the adaptive time solver to select deltat > max_deltat.

Definition at line 167 of file adaptive_time_solver.h.

◆ max_growth

Real libMesh::AdaptiveTimeSolver::max_growth

Do not allow the adaptive time solver to select a new deltat greater than max_growth times the old deltat.

If you use the default max_growth=0.0, then the deltat growth is unlimited.

Definition at line 181 of file adaptive_time_solver.h.

◆ min_deltat

Definition at line 192 of file time_solver.h.

◆ reduce_deltat_on_diffsolver_failure

unsigned int libMesh::TimeSolver::reduce_deltat_on_diffsolver_failure
inherited

This value (which defaults to zero) is the number of times the TimeSolver is allowed to halve deltat and let the DiffSolver repeat the latest failed solve with a reduced timestep.

Note
This has no effect for SteadySolvers.
You must set at least one of the DiffSolver flags "continue_after_max_iterations" or "continue_after_backtrack_failure" to allow the TimeSolver to retry the solve.

Definition at line 221 of file time_solver.h.

◆ solution_history

protectedinherited

Default is NoSolutionHistory, which the user can override by declaring a different kind of SolutionHistory in the application

Definition at line 265 of file time_solver.h.

◆ target_tolerance

Real libMesh::AdaptiveTimeSolver::target_tolerance

This tolerance is the target relative error between an exact time integration and a single time step output, scaled by deltat.

integrator, scaled by deltat. If the estimated error exceeds or undershoots the target error tolerance, future timesteps will be run with deltat shrunk or grown to compensate.

The default value is 1.0e-2; obviously users should select their own tolerance.

If a negative target_tolerance is specified, then its absolute value is used to scale the estimated error from the first simulation time step, and this becomes the target tolerance of all future time steps.

Definition at line 144 of file adaptive_time_solver.h.

◆ upper_tolerance

Real libMesh::AdaptiveTimeSolver::upper_tolerance

This tolerance is the maximum relative error between an exact time integration and a single time step output, scaled by deltat.

If this error tolerance is exceeded by the estimated error of the current time step, that time step will be repeated with a smaller deltat.

If you use the default upper_tolerance=0.0, then the current time step will not be repeated regardless of estimated error.

If a negative upper_tolerance is specified, then its absolute value is used to scale the estimated error from the first simulation time step, and this becomes the upper tolerance of all future time steps.
