VectorPostprocessorComparison

Compares two vector post-processors of equal size and produces a boolean value

This post-processor is used to compare two vector post-processor vectors that have the same length. It returns a value of 1 (denoting "true") if the comparison tests between all pairs of elements between the vectors are true. Else it returns a value of 0 (denoting "false"). There are a number of different options for the parameter comparison_type. Denoting the first vector as a and the second as b, these options are as follows:

ValueTest
equalsa == b?
greater_thana > b?
greater_than_equalsa >= b?
less_thana < b?
less_than_equalsa <= b?

All tests use a "fuzzy" comparison; see the corresponding functions in MooseUtils Namespace.

    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

    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:
