zone consolidation command


zone consolidation f keyword

Perform fluid calculations, simplified. This command provides a simplified syntax for performing uncoupled consolidation calculations. The input f is the total fluid time.

convergence f

Set the solution limit based on the maximum mechanical convergence value of all gridpoints and zones in the model.

ratio f

Set the solution limit based on the current mechanical convergence ratio value, as defined by the various modules that use it. By default this is the same as ratio-average.

Usage Example

The following example illustrates how zone consolidation can be used. For example,

zone consolidation [f] ratio 2e-5

is equivalent to

model fluid active on mech off
model solve fluid time-total [f]
model fluid active off mech on
zone gridpoint initialize biot 0.0
model solve ratio 2e-5
