Al2O3 AuxKernel

Calculates the Aluminum oxide thickness with either the Griess model or a user-defined function

Description

Using either a user defined function or the Griess model, Al2O3Aux finds the thickness of the aluminum oxide layer. The Griess model calculates the thickness, , as (1) where is the temperature in Kelvin and is given by (2) in which is the simulation time (s), is the position (m), and is the temperature (K).
