Oxide AuxKernel

This class incorporates correlations for Zircaloy cladding oxidation through metal-water reactions.

Description

note:Functionality Being Replaced by a Material

The functionality of this AuxKernel is being replaced by the material ZryOxidation. Use of the material is preferred over this AuxKernel.

Example Input Syntax
