Crystal Plasticity Rotation Out Aux

Output updated rotation tensor to a file: Use for stereographic plots

Description

This AuxKernel, CrystalPlasticityRotationOutAux is intended for use in crystal plasticity simulations with texture evolution of the crystal lattice and for debugging purposes to verify the Euler Angles used in a simulation. Depending on the setting of the output_frequency parameter, this AuxKernel will save the values of the Rotation matrix for the crystal by writing to a separate file.

Because this AuxKernel writes to a separate file as often as every timestep (the default value of the output_frequency parameter is 1), use of this AuxKernel can be computationally expensive. Caution in using this AuxKernel is strongly recommended.

Example Input File Syntax


[./rotout]
  type = CrystalPlasticityRotationOutAux
  variable = rotout
  execute_on = timestep_end
  block = 0
[../]
(moose/modules/tensor_mechanics/test/tests/cp_user_object/crysp_save_euler.i)

An AuxVariable is required to store the CrystalPlasticityRotationOutAux AuxKernel information. Note that the name of the AuxVariable is used as the argument for the variable input parameter in the CrystalPlasticityRotationOutAux block. !listing modules/tensor_mechanics/test/tests/cp_user_object/crysp_save_euler.i block=AuxVariables/rotout
