Crack Data Sampler

Outputs the values of a set of domain integral postprocessors as a vector, along with their positions along the crack front.

This object is used to report the values of the set of fracture domain integrals computed by independent Postprocessors along the crack front as a vector of values, along with the position along the crack front, expressed either as a distance or an angle. This object is typically not defined by a user, but is set up automatically using a DomainIntegralAction.

Input Parameters

  • crack_front_definitionThe CrackFrontDefinition user object name

    C++ Type:UserObjectName

    Options:

    Description:The CrackFrontDefinition user object name

  • postprocessorsThe postprocessors whose values are to be reported

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:The postprocessors whose values are to be reported

  • sort_byWhat to sort the samples by

    C++ Type:MooseEnum

    Options:x y z id

    Description:What to sort the samples by

Required Parameters

  • position_typeDistanceThe method used to calculate position along crack front. Options are: Angle Distance

    Default:Distance

    C++ Type:MooseEnum

    Options:Angle Distance

    Description:The method used to calculate position along crack front. Options are: Angle Distance

  • execute_onTIMESTEP_ENDThe list of flag(s) indicating when this object should be executed, the available options include NONE, INITIAL, LINEAR, NONLINEAR, TIMESTEP_END, TIMESTEP_BEGIN, FINAL, CUSTOM.

    Default:TIMESTEP_END

    C++ Type:ExecFlagEnum

    Options:NONE INITIAL LINEAR NONLINEAR TIMESTEP_END TIMESTEP_BEGIN FINAL CUSTOM

    Description:The list of flag(s) indicating when this object should be executed, the available options include NONE, INITIAL, LINEAR, NONLINEAR, TIMESTEP_END, TIMESTEP_BEGIN, FINAL, CUSTOM.

  • _is_broadcastTrue

    Default:True

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

  • contains_complete_historyFalseSet this flag to indicate that the values in all vectors declared by this VPP represent a time history (e.g. with each invocation, new values are added and old values are never removed). This changes the output so that only a single file is output and updated with each invocation

    Default:False

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Set this flag to indicate that the values in all vectors declared by this VPP represent a time history (e.g. with each invocation, new values are added and old values are never removed). This changes the output so that only a single file is output and updated with each invocation

Optional Parameters

  • enableTrueSet the enabled status of the MooseObject.

    Default:True

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Set the enabled status of the MooseObject.

  • 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.

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

    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

  • 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.

  • allow_duplicate_execution_on_initialFalseIn the case where this UserObject is depended upon by an initial condition, allow it to be executed twice during the initial setup (once before the IC and again after mesh adaptivity (if applicable).

    Default:False

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:In the case where this UserObject is depended upon by an initial condition, allow it to be executed twice during the initial setup (once before the IC and again after mesh adaptivity (if applicable).

  • force_preauxFalseForces the GeneralUserObject to be executed in PREAUX

    Default:False

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Forces the GeneralUserObject to be executed in PREAUX
