TensorMechanicsPlasticMeanCapTC

under construction:Undocumented Class

The TensorMechanicsPlasticMeanCapTC has not been documented, if you would like to contribute to MOOSE by writing documentation, please see Documenting MOOSE. The content contained on this page explains the typical documentation associated with a MooseObject; however, what is contained is ultimately determined by what is necessary to make the documentation clear for users.

Associative mean-cap tensile and compressive plasticity with hardening/softening

Input Parameters

  • compressive_strengthA TensorMechanicsHardening UserObject that defines hardening of the mean-cap compressive strength. This should always be less than tensile_strength (it will typically be negative). Yield function = - (trace(stress) - compressive_strength) for trace(stress)

    C++ Type:UserObjectName

    Options:

    Description:A TensorMechanicsHardening UserObject that defines hardening of the mean-cap compressive strength. This should always be less than tensile_strength (it will typically be negative). Yield function = - (trace(stress) - compressive_strength) for trace(stress)

  • tensile_strengthA TensorMechanicsHardening UserObject that defines hardening of the mean-cap tensile strength (it will typically be positive). Yield function = trace(stress) - tensile_strength for trace(stress)>tensile_strength.

    C++ Type:UserObjectName

    Options:

    Description:A TensorMechanicsHardening UserObject that defines hardening of the mean-cap tensile strength (it will typically be positive). Yield function = trace(stress) - tensile_strength for trace(stress)>tensile_strength.

  • internal_constraint_toleranceThe Newton-Raphson process is only deemed converged if the internal constraint is less than this.

    C++ Type:double

    Options:

    Description:The Newton-Raphson process is only deemed converged if the internal constraint is less than this.

  • yield_function_toleranceIf the yield function is less than this amount, the (stress, internal parameter) are deemed admissible.

    C++ Type:double

    Options:

    Description:If the yield function is less than this amount, the (stress, internal parameter) are deemed admissible.

Required Parameters

  • 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.

  • use_custom_returnMapTrueWhether to use the custom MeanCapTC returnMap algorithm.

    Default:True

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Whether to use the custom MeanCapTC returnMap algorithm.

  • use_custom_ctoTrueWhether to use the custom consistent tangent operator computations.

    Default:True

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Whether to use the custom consistent tangent operator computations.

  • max_iterations10Maximum iterations for custom MeanCapTC return map

    Default:10

    C++ Type:unsigned int

Optional Parameters

  • 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.

  • enableTrueSet the enabled status of the MooseObject.

    Default:True

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Set the enabled status of the MooseObject.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • force_preauxFalseForces the GeneralUserObject to be executed in PREAUX

    Default:False

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Forces the GeneralUserObject to be executed in PREAUX
