OOF2: The Manual
OOF.Settings.Mesh_Defaults.SelfConsistency — Set the tolerance and iteration limit used when self-consistently solving multiple subproblems simultaneously.
- Parent Menu: OOF.Settings.Mesh_Defaults
- Relative tolerance for consistency. Type: A real number.
- Maximum number of iterations to perform. Type: Integer.
Set the tolerance and maximum number of iterations for the
self-consistency checks performed when solving
SubProblems, OOF2 iterates over all of the
SubProblems at each time step, and stops iterating when it obtains
results that are consistent with the previous iteration. This
interactions with the other subproblems are accounted for correctly.
Self-consistency of a
SubProblem is computed by constructing a
vector from all of the
Field values on all of the
Vectors are compared using values from before and after one
iteration of the solver. If the norm of the difference of the two
vectors is less than
tolerance times the sum of
the norms of the two vectors, the solutions are deemed to be
10-6, and the default
max_iterations is 100.
In the GUI, this command is invoked from the Settings menu in the menubar in the main OOF2 window.
