KKSPhaseChemicalPotential

KKS model kernel to enforce the pointwise equality of phase chemical potentials dFa/dca = dFb/dcb. The non-linear variable of this kernel is ca.

Enforces the point wise equality of the phase chemical potentials

\frac{dF_a}{dc_a}=\frac{dF_b}{dc_b}.

The non-linear variable of this Kernel is .

Residual

R=\frac{dF_a}{dc_a} - \frac{dF_b}{dc_b}

Jacobian

For the Jacobian we need to calculate

J=\frac \partial{\partial u_j}\left( \frac{dF_a}{dc_a} - \frac{dF_b}{dc_b} \right).

On-Diagonal

J = \phi_j \left( \frac{\partial2 F_a}{\partial c_a2} - \frac{\partial^2 F_b}{\partial c_a \partial c_b} \right)

Off-Diagonal

With the union of the argument vectors of and (represented in the code by _coupled_moose_vars[]) we get

\sum_i \left( \frac{\partial2 F_a}{\partial c_a \partial q_i}\frac{\partial q_i}{\partial u_j} - \frac{\partial2 F_b}{\partial c_b \partial q_i}\frac{\partial q_i}{\partial u_j} \right).

Again the is non-zero only if , which is the case if is the argument selected through jvar.

J = \frac{\partial2 F_a}{\partial c_a \partial q_\text{jvar}}\phi_j - \frac{\partial2 F_b}{\partial c_b \partial q_\text{jvar}}\phi_j.

Note that in the code jvar is not an index into _coupled_moose_vars[] but has to be resolved through the _jvar_map.
