We start with simple linear homogeneous elliptic problem: $$ \begin{equation} k\; \Delta h = 0 \quad \text{in }\Omega \end{equation}$$ w.r.t boundary conditions $$ \eqalign{ h(x) = g_D(x) &\quad \text{on }\Gamma_D,\cr k\;{\partial h(x) \over \partial n} = g_N(x) &\quad \text{on }\Gamma_N, }$$
where $h$ could be hydraulic head, the subscripts $D$ and $N$ denote the Dirichlet and Neumanntype boundary conditions, $n$ is the normal vector pointing outside of $\Omega$, and $\Gamma = \Gamma_D \cup \Gamma_N$ and $\Gamma_D \cap \Gamma_N = \emptyset$.
We solve the Laplace equation on a square domain $[0\times 1]^2$ with $k = 1$ w.r.t. the specific boundary conditions: $$ \eqalign{ h(x,y) = 1 &\quad \text{on } (x=0,y) \subset \Gamma_D,\cr h(x,y) = 1 &\quad \text{on } (x=1,y) \subset \Gamma_D,\cr k\;{\partial h(x,y) \over \partial n} = 0 &\quad \text{on }\Gamma_N. }$$ The solution of this problem is $$ h(x,y) = 1  2x. $$
The main project file is square_1e2.prj
. It describes the processes to be solved and the related process variables together with their initial and boundary conditions. It also references the mesh and geometrical objects defined on the mesh.
As of now a small portion of possible inputs is implemented; one can change:
The geometries used to specify the boundary conditions are given in the square_1x1.gml
file.
The input mesh square_1x1_quad_1e2.vtu
is stored in the VTK file format and can be directly visualized in ParaView for example.
To start the simulation (after successful compilation) run:
ogs square_1e2.prj
It will produce the output files square_1e2_pcs_0.pvd
,
square_1e2_pcs_0_ts_0_t_0.000000.vtu
and
square_1e2_pcs_0_ts_1_t_1.000000.vtu
. The last file contains the results
computed in the first time step.
The output on the console will be similar to the following one (ignore the spurious error messages “Could not find POINT…”):
error: GEOObjects::getGeoObject(): Could not find POINT "left" in geometry.
error: GEOObjects::getGeoObject(): Could not find POINT "right" in geometry.
