LevelSetForcingFunctionSUPG

This kernel adds the Streamline Upwind/Petrov-Galerkin (SUPG) stabilization term (Brooks and Hughes, 1982; Donea and Huerta, 2003) to a forcing or source term of a partial differential equation:

(1) where is the level set velocity, is the forcing term, and as defined below.

(2) where is the element length.

Example Syntax

The LevelSetForcingFunctionSUPG Kernel should be used in conjunction with a forcing term. For example, if a BodyForce is defined as follows in the [Kernels] block.

[./phi_forcing]
  type = BodyForce
  variable = phi
  function = phi_mms
[../]
(modules/level_set/test/tests/verification/1d_level_set_supg_mms/1d_level_set_supg_mms.i)

Given the forcing term, it is then possible to add the SUPG term to the same forcing function in the [Kernels] block as follows.

[./phi_forcing_supg]
  type = LevelSetForcingFunctionSUPG
  velocity_x = v_x
  variable = phi
  function = phi_mms
[../]
(modules/level_set/test/tests/verification/1d_level_set_supg_mms/1d_level_set_supg_mms.i)
