MOX Pore Restructuring: Diffusion

MOX porosity diffusion kernel used with kernel MOXPoreContinuity.

Description

Pore migration, or restructuring, is modeled by applying the concept of pore conservation. Numerical instability in solving continuity (see second term in the subsequent equation) using finite elements is a common problem. The addition of diffusion can reduce numerical instability. When running MOX pore migration simulation, using this class, MOXPoreDiffusion, is recommended. See the third term in following continuity equation: (1) where is the porosity, is the pore velocity, is the temperature, and is the diffusion coefficient (a constant in this case). This term is very much like a diffusion kernel found in MOOSE, with the exception of parameters that constrain this kernel to be active only when the function specified by the parameter heating_function is increasing with time. The pore speed, comes from a calculation performed in MOXPoreVelocity or MOXPoreVelocityVaporPressure.
