C++ Type:UserObjectName

Description:The UserObject that holds the list of PorousFlow variable names

- variableThe name of the variable that this kernel operates on
C++ Type:NonlinearVariableName

Description:The name of the variable that this kernel operates on

- fluxesTuple of flux values (measured in kg.m^-1.s^-1 if no 'use_*' are employed). These flux values are multiplied by the line-segment length to achieve a flux in kg.s^-1. A piecewise-linear fit is performed to the (p_or_t_vals,flux) pairs to obtain the flux at any arbitrary pressure (or temperature). If a quad-point pressure is less than the first pressure value, the first flux value is used. If quad-point pressure exceeds the final pressure value, the final flux value is used. This flux is OUT of the medium: hence positive values of flux means this will be a SINK, while negative values indicate this flux will be a SOURCE.

- point_fileThe file containing the coordinates of the points and their weightings that approximate the line sink. The physical meaning of the weightings depend on the scenario, eg, they may be borehole radii. Each line in the file must contain a space-separated weight and coordinate, viz r x y z. For boreholes, the last point in the file is defined as the borehole bottom, where the borehole pressure is bottom_pressure. If your file contains just one point, you must also specify the line_length and line_direction parameters. Note that you will get segementation faults if your points do not lie within your mesh!

# PorousFlowPolyLineSink

A `PorousFlowPolyLineSink`

is a special case of the general line sink in which a polyline (represented by a sequence of points) acts as a sink or source in the model. Please see sinks for an extended discussion and examples.
