MOX Oxygen Partial Pressure Calculation

Calculates oxygen partial pressure and corresponding integral. Used with material MOXVaporPressure and MOXPoreVelocityVaporPressure.

Description

The calculation for pore speed requires the partial pressure of oxygen, which is calculated using this class [MOXOxygenPartialPressure]. From Kato et al. (2017): (1) where the third term, has the definition (2) where for MOX fuel (3) while for Am-MOX fuel (4) This nonlinear equation is solved by providing a value for O/M, then using a bisect method to determine the corresponding value of . The numeric integral of is also calculated here for use with MOXPartialPressure where the constituent vapor pressures, their sum and derivative with respect to temperature are then used in MOXPoreVelocityPartialPressure.

Input Parameters

  • temperatureCoupled Temperature

    Default:True

    C++ Type:bool

    Description:Set the enabled status of the MooseObject.

  • use_displaced_meshFalseWhether or not this object should use the displaced mesh for computation. Note that in the case this is true but no displacements are provided in the Mesh block the undisplaced mesh will still be used.

    Default:False

    C++ Type:bool

    Description:Whether or not this object should use the displaced mesh for computation. Note that in the case this is true but no displacements are provided in the Mesh block the undisplaced mesh will still be used.

  • control_tagsAdds user-defined labels for accessing object parameters via control logic.

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Description:Adds user-defined labels for accessing object parameters via control logic.

  • seed0The seed for the master random number generator

    C++ Type:unsigned int

    Description:The seed for the master random number generator

  • implicitTrueDetermines whether this object is calculated using an implicit or explicit form

    Default:True

    C++ Type:bool

    Description:Determines whether this object is calculated using an implicit or explicit form

  • constant_onNONEWhen ELEMENT, MOOSE will only call computeQpProperties() for the 0th quadrature point, and then copy that value to the other qps.When SUBDOMAIN, MOOSE will only call computeSubdomainProperties() for the 0th quadrature point, and then copy that value to the other qps. Evaluations on element qps will be skipped

Evaluations on element qps will be skipped
