DerivativeSumMaterial

Meta-material to sum up multiple derivative materials

This material generates new material properties that sum up the values and derivatives of a specified set of function materials. Using args argument the union of all sets of dependent variables has to be specified so that the DerivativeSumMaterial can gather the necessary derivatives to sum up.

Input Parameters

  • argsArguments of the free energy functions being summed - use vector coupling

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:Arguments of the free energy functions being summed - use vector coupling

Required Parameters

  • computeTrueWhen false, MOOSE will not call compute methods on this material. The user must call computeProperties() after retrieving the Material via MaterialPropertyInterface::getMaterial(). Non-computed Materials are not sorted for dependencies.

    Default:True

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:When false, MOOSE will not call compute methods on this material. The user must call computeProperties() after retrieving the Material via MaterialPropertyInterface::getMaterial(). Non-computed Materials are not sorted for dependencies.

  • displacement_gradientsVector of displacement gradient variables (see Modules/PhaseField/DisplacementGradients action)

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

  • f_nameFBase name of the free energy function (used to name the material properties)

    Default:F

    C++ Type:std::string

    Options:

  • sum_materialsBase name of the free energy function (used to name the material properties)

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:Base name of the free energy function (used to name the material properties)

  • derivative_order3Maximum order of derivatives taken (2 or 3)

    Default:3

    C++ Type:unsigned int

    Options:

    Description:List of material properties, from this material, to output (outputs must also be defined to an output type)

  • outputsnone Vector of output names were you would like to restrict the output of variables(s) associated with this object

    Default:none

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:Vector of output names were you would like to restrict the output of variables(s) associated with this object

Outputs Parameters

  • enableTrueSet the enabled status of the MooseObject.

    Default:True

    Description:Constant to be added to the prefactor multiplied sum.

  • use_displaced_meshFalseWhether or not this object should use the displaced mesh for computation. Note that in the case this is true but no displacements are provided in the Mesh block the undisplaced mesh will still be used.

    Default:False

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Whether or not this object should use the displaced mesh for computation. Note that in the case this is true but no displacements are provided in the Mesh block the undisplaced mesh will still be used.

  • control_tagsAdds user-defined labels for accessing object parameters via control logic.

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:Adds user-defined labels for accessing object parameters via control logic.

  • seed0The seed for the master random number generator
