User Function USF_Damage

General Informations

  • User Function Fortran File: USF_Damage.f90
  • Function 1 Name: EnhancementFactor
  • Function 2 Name: SourceDamage

General Description

USF_Damage.pdf

The first function changes the rheology of the damage ice by impacting the enhancement factor.

The second function is used to compute the source term of the advection-reaction solver.

SIF contents

The required keywords in the SIF file for this User Function are:

Constants
  Dev Tensile Strength Modifier = Real 0.05 ! standard deviation for the stress threshold distribution
End

Body Force 1
  DGD Source = Variable Damage
    Real Procedure "ElmerIceUSF" "SourceDamage"
End

Material 1
  Glen Enhancement Factor = Variable Damage
    Real Procedure "ElmerIceUSF" "EnhancementFactor" 
    
  Damage Enhancement Factor = Real 2.00 ! damage enhancement factor
  Damage Parameter sigmath = Real 0.05 ! stress threshold for damage increase
End

Additionnally, for output visualisation, the damage criterion Chi is saved as a variable named Chi, which need to be exported in a solver, such as :

Solver 3
  Equation = Sij
  Procedure = "ElmerIceSolvers" "ComputeDevStress"
[...]
  Exported Variable 1 = Stress[Sxx:1 Syy:1 Szz:1 Sxy:1 Syz:1 Sxz:1]
  Exported Variable 1 DOFs = 6
  Exported Variable 2 = -dofs 1 "Chi"
[...]
End
