# LevelSetVolume

A Postprocessor object utilized for computing the area or volume of the inside or outside of a level set contour. The value computed from this postprocessor is an estimate computed using a weighted average of the level set variables values at each quadrature point of an element.

## Example Syntax


[./area]
type = LevelSetVolume
threshold = 0.5
variable = phi
location = outside
execute_on = 'initial timestep_end'
[../]
(modules/level_set/test/tests/reinitialization/master.i)

## Input Parameters

• variableThe name of the variable that this postprocessor operates on

C++ Type:std::vector

Options:

Description:The name of the variable that this postprocessor operates on

### Required Parameters

• threshold0The level set threshold to consider for computing area/volume.

Default:0

C++ Type:double

Options:

Description:The level set threshold to consider for computing area/volume.

• 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.

• locationinsideThe location of the area/volume to be computed.

Default:inside

C++ Type:MooseEnum

Options:inside outside

Description:The location of the area/volume to be computed.

• blockThe list of block ids (SubdomainID) that this object will be applied

C++ Type:std::vector

Options:

Description:The list of block ids (SubdomainID) that this object will be applied

### 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.

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).

• seed0The seed for the master random number generator
