Linear Viscoelasticity Manager

Manages the updating of the semi-implicit single-step first-order finite difference time-stepping scheme

Description

This updates the internal time-stepping scheme for linear viscoelastic materials (such as a GeneralizedKelvinVoigtModel or a GeneralizedMaxwellModel material) at the beginning of each time step. Including a LinearViscoelasticStressUpdate in the simulation is required for the linear viscoelastic strains to be updated properly.

    Default:creep_strain

    C++ Type:std::string

    Options:

    Description:name of the creep strain tensor used for the viscoelastic update

  • stress_namestressname of the stress tensor used for the viscoelastic update

    Default:stress

    C++ Type:std::string

    Options:

  • 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.

  • 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

    Default:0
