Bodies¶
Body¶

class
yade.wrapper.
Body
(inherits Serializable)¶ A particle, basic element of simulation; interacts with other bodies.

aspherical
(=false)¶ Whether this body has different inertia along principal axes; NewtonIntegrator makes use of this flag to call rotation integration routine for aspherical bodies, which is more expensive.

bounded
(=true)¶ Whether this body should have Body.bound created. Note that bodies without a bound do not participate in collision detection. (In c++, use
Body::isBounded
/Body::setBounded
)

clumpId
¶ Id of clump this body makes part of; invalid number if not part of clump; see Body::isStandalone, Body::isClump, Body::isClumpMember properties.
Not meant to be modified directly from Python, use O.bodies.appendClumped instead.

dict
((Serializable)arg1) → dict :¶ Return dictionary of attributes.

dynamic
(=true)¶ Whether this body will be moved by forces. (In c++, use
Body::isDynamic
/Body::setDynamic
)

flags
(=FLAG_BOUNDED)¶ Bits of various bodyrelated flags. Do not access directly. In c++, use isDynamic/setDynamic, isBounded/setBounded, isAspherical/setAspherical. In python, use Body.dynamic, Body.bounded, Body.aspherical.

isFluidDomainBox
(=false)¶ Whether this body is a Fluid grid bounding box should have Body.bound created. FluidDomainBboxes` do not participate to collision detection with their own bodies, they may interact with external bodies and other subdomains through virtual interactions. (In c++, use

/Body::setIsFluidDomainBbox
)

isStandalone
¶ True if this body is neither clump, nor clump member; false otherwise.

Note
Density is initialized to 4800 kgm⁻³automatically, which gives approximate 2800 kgm⁻³ on 0.5 density packing.
Concrete Particle Model (CPM)
CpmMat is particle material, Ip2_CpmMat_CpmMat_CpmPhys averages two particles’ materials, creating CpmPhys, which is then used in interaction resultion by Law2_ScGeom_CpmPhys_Cpm. CpmState is associated to CpmMat and keeps state defined on particles rather than interactions (such as number of completely damaged interactions).
The model is contained in externally defined macro CPM_MATERIAL_MODEL, which features damage in tension, plasticity in shear and compression and ratedependence. For commercial reasons, ratedependence and compressionplasticity is not present in reduced version of the model, used when CPM_MATERIAL_MODEL is not defined. The full model will be described in detail in my (Václav Šmilauer) thesis along with calibration procedures (rigidity, poisson’s ratio, compressive/tensile strength ratio, fracture energy, behavior under confinement, ratedependent behavior).
Even the public model is useful enough to run simulation on concrete samples, such as uniaxial tensioncompression test.

Interaction¶

class
yade.wrapper.
Interaction
(inherits Serializable)¶ Interaction between pair of bodies.

cellDist
¶ Distance of bodies in cell size units, if using periodic boundary conditions; id2 is shifted by this number of cells from its State::pos coordinates for this interaction to exist. Assigned by the collider.
Warning
(internal) cellDist must survive Interaction::reset(), it is only initialized in ctor. Interaction that was cancelled by the constitutive law, was reset() and became only potential must have the period information if the geometric functor again makes it real. Good to know after few days of debugging that :)

ScGeom
(inherits GenericSpheresContact → IGeom → Serializable)¶ Class representing geometry of a contact point between two bodies. It is more general than spheresphere contact even though it is primarily focused on spheres contact interactions (reason for the ‘Sc’ naming); it is also used for representing contacts of a Sphere with nonspherical bodies (Facet, Plane, Box, ChainedCylinder), or between two nonspherical bodies (ChainedCylinder). The contact has 3 DOFs (normal and 2×shear) and uses incremental algorithm for updating shear.
We use symbols \(\vec{x}\), \(\vec{v}\), \(\vec{\omega}\) respectively for position, linear and angular velocities (all in global coordinates) and \(r\) for particles radii; subscripted with 1 or 2 to distinguish 2 spheres in contact. Then we define branch length and unit contact normal
\[l=\vec{x}_2\vec{x}_1, \vec{n}=\frac{\vec{x}_2\vec{x}_1}{\vec{x}_2\vec{x}_1}\]The relative velocity of the spheres is then
\[\vec{v}_{12}=\frac{r_1+r_2}{l}(\vec{v}_2\vec{v}_1) (r_2 \vec{\omega}_2 + r_1\vec{\omega}_1)\times\vec{n}\]where the fraction multiplying translational velocities is to make the definition objective and avoid ratcheting effects (see Ig2_Sphere_Sphere_ScGeom.avoidGranularRatcheting). The shear component is
\[\vec{v}_{12}^s=\vec{v}_{12}(\vec{n}\cdot\vec{v}_{12})\vec{n}.\]Tangential displacement increment over last step then reads
\[\Delta\vec{x}_{12}^s=\Delta t \vec{v}_{12}^s.\]

CapillarityEngine
(inherits GlobalEngine → Engine → Serializable)¶ This engine loops over interactions with physics CapillaryPhysDelaunay and it assign pendular bridges to them. It is a reimplementation of [Scholtes2009b], adding the option of imposing the bridge volume (instead of only capillary pressure) and enabling using unstructured input data by triangulation. This reimplementation also provides more geometrical quantities in order to define interfacial energy terms, it was used specifically in [Chalak2017].
If :yref:`CapillarityEngine.imposePressure`==True, a uniform capillary pressure is assigned to all bridges, the liquid volume of each bridge is a result and it will change if the distance between the spheres changes. If :yref:`CapillarityEngine.imposePressure`==False, then the volume of each bridge remains constant during motion, and capillary pressure is updated, instead.
For references, see [Scholtes2009b] and a couple papers by the same authors; [Scholtes2009d] (in french) is the most detailed.
The engine needs an input data file available in yadedata package.
In order to allow capillary forces between distant spheres, it is necessary to enlarge the bounding boxes using Bo1_Sphere_Aabb::aabbEnlargeFactor and make the Ig2 define define distant interactions via:yref:interactionDetectionFactor<Ig2_Sphere_Sphere_ScGeom::interactionDetectionFactor>. It is also necessary to disable interactions removal by the constitutive law (Law2). The only combinations of laws supported are currently capillary law + Law2_ScGeom_FrictPhys_CundallStrack and capillary law + Law2_ScGeom_MindlinPhys_Mindlin (and the other variants of HertzMindlin).
See triaxCapillarityDelaunay.py for an example script.

(=1)¶ Number of threads to be used in the engine. If ompThreads<0 (default), the number will be typically OMP_NUM_THREADS or the number N defined by ‘yade jN’ (this behavior can depend on the engine though). This attribute will only affect engines whose code includes openMP parallel regions (e.g. InteractionLoop). This attribute is mostly useful for experiments or when combining ParallelEngine with engines that run parallel regions, resulting in nested OMP loops with different number of threads at each level.

projectionAxis
(=Vector3r::UnitX())¶ Axis along which to do the initial vertex sort

relTolerance
(=1e4)¶ maximum distance of ‘identical’ vertices, relative to minimum facet size

timingDeltas
¶ Detailed information about timing inside the Engine itself. Empty unless enabled in the source code and O.timingEnabled==
True
.

updateAttrs
((Serializable)arg1, (dict)arg2) → None :¶ Update object attributes from given dictionary


class
yade.wrapper.
FoamCoupling
(inherits GlobalEngine → Engine → Serializable)¶  An engine for coupling Yade with the finite volume fluid solver OpenFOAM in parallel.
Requirements : Yade compiled with MPI libs, OpenFOAM6 (openfoam is not required for compilation).Yade is executed under MPI environment with OpenFOAM simultaneously, and using MPI communication routines data is exchanged between the solvers.
 Yade broadcasts the particle data > position, velocity, angvelocity, radius to all the foam processes as in castParticle
 In each foam process, particle is searched.Yade keeps a vector(cpp) of the rank of the openfoam process containing that particular particle (FoamCoupling::procList), using updateProcList
3. In simple lagrangian point force coupling Yade recieves the particle hydrodynamic force and torque from the openfoam process, the sender is identified from the vector FoamCoupling::procList. In the case of Gaussian interpolation, contribution from every process is summed using function sumHydroForce . 4. The interval (substepping) is set automatically (FoamCoupling::dataExchangeInterval) based on dtfoam/dtYade, calculated in function exchangeDeltaT

comm
¶ Communicator to be used for MPI (converts mpi4py comm <> c++ comm)

couplingModeParallel
(=false)¶ set true if YadeMPI is being used.

dataExchangeInterval
¶ Number of iterations/substepping : for stability and to be in sync with fluid solver calculated in exchangeDeltaT

dead
(=false)¶ If true, this engine will not run at all; can be used for making an engine temporarily deactivated and only resurrect it at a later point.

dict
((Serializable)arg1) → dict :¶ Return dictionary of attributes.

eraseId
((FoamCoupling)arg1, (int)idToErase) → None :¶ remove a body from hydrodynamic force coupling

execCount
¶ Cumulative count this engine was run (only used if O.timingEnabled==
True
).

execTime
¶ Cumulative time in nanoseconds this Engine took to run (only used if O.timingEnabled==
True
).

fluidDensity
(=1)¶ fluidDensity

fluidDomains
(=std::vector<Body::id_t>())¶ list of fluid domain bounding fictitious fluid bodies that has the fluid mesh bounds

foamDeltaT
¶ timestep in openfoam solver from exchangeDeltaT

getFluidDomainBbox
((FoamCoupling)arg1) → None :¶ get the fluid domain bounding boxes, called once during simulation initialization.

getIdList
((FoamCoupling)arg1) → object :¶ get the ids of bodies in coupling

getNumBodies
((FoamCoupling)arg1) → int :¶ get the number of bodies in the coupling

getRank
((FoamCoupling)arg1) → None :¶ Initiallize MPI communicator for coupling. Should be called at the beginning of the script. :yref: initMPI <FoamCoupling::initMPI> Initializes the MPI environment.

insertBodyId
((FoamCoupling)arg1, (int)newId) → None :¶ insert a new body id for hydrodynamic force coupling

isGaussianInterp
¶ switch for Gaussian interpolation of field varibles in openfoam. Uses sumHydroForce to obtain hydrodynamic force

killMPI
((FoamCoupling)arg1) → None :¶ Destroy MPI, to be called at the end of the simulation, from killMPI

label
(=uninitalized)¶ Textual label for this object; must be valid python identifier, you can refer to it directly from python.

numParticles
(=1)¶ number of particles in coupling.

ompThreads
(=1)¶ Number of threads to be used in the engine. If ompThreads<0 (default), the number will be typically OMP_NUM_THREADS or the number N defined by ‘yade jN’ (this behavior can depend on the engine though). This attribute will only affect engines whose code includes openMP parallel regions (e.g. InteractionLoop). This attribute is mostly useful for experiments or when combining ParallelEngine with engines that run parallel regions, resulting in nested OMP loops with different number of threads at each level.

particleDensity
(=1)¶ particle Density

setIdList
((FoamCoupling)arg1, (object)bodyIdlist) → None :¶ list of body ids in hydroForce coupling. (links to :yref: FoamCoupling::bodyList vector, used to build particle data FoamCoupling::particleData. FoamCoupling::particleData contains the particle pos, vel, angvel, radius and this is sent to foam.
