# Legacy Kernel-Only Tensor Mechanics Action

warning:Deprecated Action

This legacy action will soon be deprecated in favor of the more inclusive TensorMechanics/Master. See the description, example use, and parameters on the TensorMechanics/Master action system page.

## Description

The legacy kernel only tensor mechanics action simplifies the input file syntax for creating a tensor mechanics model by reducing the number of kernels required. See a description of the action and parameters on the LegacyTensorMechanicsAction action system page.
