class EquationSystems

A collection of Equations to be solved on a Realm.

EquationSystems holds a vector of EquationSystem instances representing the equations that are being solved in a given Realm and is responsible for the management of the solve and update of the various field quantities in a given timestep.

See

EquationSystems::solve_and_update

Public Functions

bool solve_and_update()

Solve and update the state of all variables for a given timestep.

This method is responsible for executing setup actions before calling solve, performing the actual solve, updating the solution, and performing post-solve actions after the solution has been updated. To provide sufficient granularity and control of this pre- and post- solve actions, the solve method uses the following series of steps:

// Perform tasks for this timestep before any Equation system is called
pre_iter_work();
// Iterate over all equation systems
for (auto eqsys: equationSystems_) {
  eqsys->pre_iter_work();
  eqsys->solve_and_update();
  eqsys->post_iter_work();
}
// Perform tasks after all equation systems have updated
post_iter_work();

Tasks that require to be performed before any equation system is solved for needs to be registered to preIterAlgDriver_ on EquationSystems, similiary for post-solve tasks. And actions to be performed immediately before individual equation system solves need to be registered in EquationSystem::preIterAlgDriver_.

EquationSystem::post_iter_work()

void pre_iter_work()
