How to assemble diagonal matrix from a Function-vector

9 months ago by
Hello, everyone,
    I want to assemble a diagonal matrix from a vector, but don't know how to code with python in FeniCS.
    The question came from the enthalpy method dealing with solidification simulation, the assemmble equation is M{H}+K{T}=F, Here I declare three Fucntions : T, H, and dtdh;  when solving with Newton Rapson method, the following equation comes, (M+K*[DTDH])dH = - R(H, T),  In this equation the [DTDH] matrix is a diagnal matrix which is pointwisely calculated by T and H Function, My question is how to assemble DTDH matrix from dtdh function in FEniCS?
    Before, I code the dtdh fucntion in the form to get the coeffcitiont matrix  similar with K*[DTDH], however, dtdh here is declared as a Function, so this coeff matrix is not equal with  K*[DTDH], so I want to change to the correct one.
    Anyone konw how?

Can you add the code with the form for your equations?

Sorry, The ref code is added here, can't run now, but may make my question clear

Simple version of the enthalpy method in solidification

H'= Laplace(T) + f in the unit square
u = u_D on the boundary
u = u_0 at t = 0
f = 1.0

Implicit integration is used here.

from dolfin import *

# Create mesh and define function space
mesh = UnitSquareMesh(5, 5)
V = FunctionSpace(mesh, 'P', 1)

# Define boundary condition
def boundary(x, on_boundary):
return on_boundary

bc = DirichletBC(V, 0.0, boundary)

# Define constant
alpha = Constant(1.0)
dt = Constant(0.1)

# Define initial value
H_n = interpolate(0.0, V)

# Define variational problem
du = TrialFunction(V)
v = TestFunction(V)
f = 1.0

# Define Functions to save current Temperature, Enthalpy and dTdH field
T = Function(V)
H = Function(V)
dTdH = Function(V)

# Update dTdH with the T and H nodal values
def UpdatedTdH(T, H, dTdH):
t_array = T.vector().array()
h_array = H.vector().array()
dtdh_array = dTdH.vector().array()
dtdh_array[:] = np.where(())
dTdH.vector()[:] = dtdh_array[:]

# Define a and l

# Method 1 The old way, just use dTdH function in the form, however not accurate
a = 1.0/dt*du*v*dx + dTdh*dot(grad(du), grad(v))*dx
l = 1.0/dt*(H-H_n)*v*dx + dot(grad(T), grad(v))*dx-f*v*dx

# Method 2 The new way, assembly matrix M, K and dTdH to form the lhs matrix
M = assemble(du*v*dx)
K = assemble(dot(grad(du), grad(v))*dx)
# Then assemble the dTdH diagonal matrix with the dTdH Function nodal value
# Finally the lhs matrix, Then solve .
A = M/dt+K*M_dTdH

Matrices have the method A.set_diagonal(vector). For the code you provided in your comment, the following should work. I didn't understand how you generate your dTdH function, but if you have one, you get a diagonal matrix like this:

from dolfin import *

mesh = UnitSquareMesh(5, 5)
V = FunctionSpace(mesh, 'P', 1)

du = TrialFunction(V)
v = TestFunction(V)

# dTdH = Function(V)
# set some dTdH values ...
dTdH = interpolate(Expression('x[0]*x[1]', degree=2), V)

M = assemble(du*v*dx)

M_dtdh = M.copy()

# check
x = dTdH.vector().copy()
