KKSMultiPhaseConcentration

KKS multi-phase model kernel to enforce . The non-linear variable of this kernel is , the final phase concentration in the list.

Residual

For a KKS model with phases, the residual of the phase concentration constraint equation is R = \left( h_1 c_1 + h_2 c_2 + h_3 c_3 + \dots + h_n c_n - c \right) where is the phase concentration for phase , is the physical solute concentration, and is the interpolation function for phase defined in Folch and Plapp (2005) (referred to as there, but we use to maintain consistency with other interpolation functions in MOOSE).

Jacobian

On-diagonal

Since the non-linear variable for this kernel is , the on-diagonal Jacobian is \begin{aligned} J && \phi_j \frac{\partial R}{\partial c_n} \\ && \phi_j h_n \end{aligned}

Off-diagonal

For the physical concentration , the off-diagonal Jacobian is \begin{aligned} J && \phi_j \frac{\partial R}{\partial c} \\ && - \phi_j \end{aligned} For phase concentrations other than ,: \begin{aligned} J && \phi_j \frac{\partial R}{\partial c_i} \\ && \phi_j h_i \end{aligned}

Finally for the order parameters, such as , \begin{aligned} J && \phi_j \frac{\partial R}{\partial \eta_1} \\ && \phi_j \left( \frac{\partial h_1}{\partial \eta_1} c_1 + \frac{\partial h_2}{\partial \eta_1} c_2 + \frac{\partial h_3}{\partial \eta_1} c_3 \right) \end{aligned} For the off-diagonal Jacobians we also need to multiply by , the Allen-Cahn mobility.
