KKSACBulkF

KKS model kernel (part 1 of 2) for the Bulk Allen-Cahn. This includes all terms NOT dependent on chemical potential.

KKS Allen-Cahn kernel for the terms without a direct composition dependence.

Residual

Jacobian

On-diagonal

We are looking for the derivative of , where . We need to apply the chain rule and will again only keep terms with the derivative.

(2)

(The implicit dependence of and on through and does not contribute to the Jacobian, so .

Off-Diagonal

The off-diagonal components are calculated for any other variables that and depend on. For example, for :

(3)

in the KKS formulation, so this term would not need to be included if was the only variable depended on. However, the code calculates derivatives with respect to all variables that and depend on in a general way so that the Jacobian entries for other dependencies are correctly computed using the same piece of code. For example, both and could depend on temperature , in which case

(4)

which is computed using the same code. The off-diagonal Jacobian contribution is also multiplied by the Allen-Cahn mobility at each point for consistency with the other terms in the Allen-Cahn equation.
