Generalized Plane Strain Action

Description

This action simplifies the input file syntax for creating a generalized plane strain model. It creates the following MOOSE objects (i.e. Kernel, ScalarKernel and UserObject) related to the out-of-plane scalar variable.

Kernel

ScalarKernel

UserObject

Generalized Plane Strain and Reference Residual

Generalized plane strain problems may use ReferenceResidualProblem. In this case, a reference scalar variable is needed to correspond with the scalar strain variable.


[Problem]
  type = ReferenceResidualProblem
  solution_variables = 'disp_x disp_y scalar_strain_zz'
  reference_residual_variables = 'saved_x saved_y saved_zz'

(modules/combined/test/tests/generalized_plane_strain_tm_contact/out_of_plane_pressure.i)

The reference scalar variable is set using the AuxScalarKernel Generalized Plane Strain Reference Residual using the Generalized Plane Strain UserObject.
