Equations
(equations)[source]¶ 
add_equation
(equation)[source]¶ Add a new equation.
Parameters:  equation : Equation instance
The new equation.

create_matrix_graph
(any_dof_conn=False, rdcs=None, cdcs=None, shape=None, active_only=True, verbose=True)[source]¶ Create tangent matrix graph, i.e. preallocate and initialize the sparse storage needed for the tangent matrix. Order of DOF connectivities is not important.
Parameters:  any_dof_conn : bool
By default, only volume DOF connectivities are used, with the exception of trace surface DOF connectivities. If True, any kind of DOF connectivities is allowed.
 rdcs, cdcs : arrays, optional
Additional row and column DOF connectivities, corresponding to the variables used in the equations.
 shape : tuple, optional
The required shape, if it is different from the shape determined by the equations variables. This may be needed if additional row and column DOF connectivities are passed in.
 active_only : bool
If True, the matrix graph has reduced size and is created with the reduced (active DOFs only) numbering.
 verbose : bool
If False, reduce verbosity.
Returns:  matrix : csr_matrix
The matrix graph in the form of a CSR matrix with preallocated structure and zero data.

create_subequations
(var_names, known_var_names=None)[source]¶ Create subequations containing only terms with the given virtual variables.
Parameters:  var_names : list
The list of names of virtual variables.
 known_var_names : list
The list of names of (already) known state variables.
Returns:  subequations : Equations instance
The subequations.

eval_residuals
(state, by_blocks=False, names=None)[source]¶ Evaluate (assemble) residual vectors.
Parameters:  state : array
The vector of DOF values. Note that it is needed only in nonlinear terms.
 by_blocks : bool
If True, return the individual blocks composing the whole residual vector. Each equation should then correspond to one required block and should be named as ‘block_name, test_variable_name, unknown_variable_name’.
 names : list of str, optional
Optionally, select only blocks with the given names, if by_blocks is True.
Returns:  out : array or dict of array
The assembled residual vector. If by_blocks is True, a dictionary is returned instead, with keys given by block_name part of the individual equation names.

eval_tangent_matrices
(state, tangent_matrix, by_blocks=False, names=None)[source]¶ Evaluate (assemble) tangent matrices.
Parameters:  state : array
The vector of DOF values. Note that it is needed only in nonlinear terms.
 tangent_matrix : csr_matrix
The preallocated CSR matrix with zero data.
 by_blocks : bool
If True, return the individual blocks composing the whole matrix. Each equation should then correspond to one required block and should be named as ‘block_name, test_variable_name, unknown_variable_name’.
 names : list of str, optional
Optionally, select only blocks with the given names, if by_blocks is True.
Returns:  out : csr_matrix or dict of csr_matrix
The assembled matrix. If by_blocks is True, a dictionary is returned instead, with keys given by block_name part of the individual equation names.

evaluate
(names=None, mode=’eval’, dw_mode=’vector’, term_mode=None, asm_obj=None)[source]¶ Evaluate the equations.

The evaluation mode.
 names : str or sequence of str, optional
Evaluate only equations of the given name(s).
Returns:  out : dict or result
The evaluation result. In ‘weak’ mode it is the asm_obj. Otherwise, it is a dict of results with equation names as keys or a single result for a single equation.

get_graph_conns
(any_dof_conn=False, rdcs=None, cdcs=None, active_only=True)[source]¶ Get DOF connectivities needed for creating tangent matrix graph.
Parameters:  any_dof_conn : bool
By default, only volume DOF connectivities are used, with the exception of trace surface DOF connectivities. If True, any kind of DOF connectivities is allowed.
 rdcs, cdcs : arrays, optional
Additional row and column DOF connectivities, corresponding to the variables used in the equations.
 active_only : bool
If True, the active DOF connectivities have reduced size and are created with the reduced (active DOFs only) numbering.
Returns:  rdcs, cdcs : arrays
The row and column DOF connectivities defining the matrix graph blocks.

get_state_parts
(vec=None)[source]¶ Return parts of a state vector corresponding to individual state variables.

Returns:  out : dict
The dictionary of the state parts.

get_variable_dependencies
()[source]¶ For each virtual variable get names of state/parameter variables that are present in terms with that virtual variable.
The virtual variables define the actual equations and their dependencies define the variables needed to evaluate the equations.
Returns:  deps : dict

make_full_vec
(svec, force_value=None)[source]¶ Make a full DOF vector satisfying E(P)BCs from a reduced DOF vector.

reset_materials
()[source]¶ Clear material data so that next materials.time_update() is performed even for stationary materials.

set_data
(data, step=0, ignore_unknown=False)[source]¶ Set data (vectors of DOF values) of variables.
Parameters:  data : array
The dictionary of {variable_name : data vector}.
 step : int, optional
The time history step, 0 (default) = current.

Ignore unknown variable names if data is a dict.

set_variables_from_state
(vec, step=0)[source]¶ Set data (vectors of DOF values) of variables.
Parameters:  data : array
The state vector.
 step : int
The time history step, 0 (default) = current.

strip_state_vector
(vec, follow_epbc=False)[source]¶ Strip a full vector by removing EBC dofs.
Notes
If ‘follow_epbc’ is True, values of EPBC master dofs are not simply thrown away, but added to the corresponding slave dofs, just like when assembling. For vectors with state (unknown) variables it should be set to False, for assembled vectors it should be set to True.

time_update
(ts, ebcs=None, epbcs=None, lcbcs=None, functions=None, problem=None, active_only=True, verbose=True)[source]¶ Update the equations for current time step.
