InputParameters validParams< AverageGrainVolume > ( )

This object has two modes of operation: It can be used with the FeatureFloodCount object (recommended) to get the active grain on element information needed to calculate volumes. It can also work on small polycrystals where an equal number of grains and order parameters are used in the simulation. This dual-functionality creates two separate code paths and parameter sets.
