Avoiding NaN on invariants of Cauchy Green deformation tensor

I would like to limit the values of invariants of Cauchy Green deformation tensor. In the code below Igama should not be lower than zero since there is a square root of Igama at the end. When I do this I get this message: "UFL conditions cannot be evaluated as bool in a Python context". If I donot limit I gama solution yields NaN. So, how can I limit the value of a solution variable (Igama)?

I = Identity(d) # Identity tensor
C = F.T*F # Right Cauchy-Green tensor
Cinv=inv(C)
Finv=inv(F)
J = det(F)
I1 = tr(C)
I2 = 0.5*(tr(C)**2-tr(dot(C,C)))
I3 = J**2.0
Jinv=J**(-1.0)
I1bar=I1/(I3**(1.0/3.0))
I2bar=I2/(I3**(2.0/3.0))
Igama = (2.0*(I1bar**2)-6.0*I2bar)
tol=1E-14
if Igama < tol:
Igama = tol
Igama = (Igama**0.5)/6.0

• You can define if statement by use of conditional statement in FEniCS. See for example here, https://fenicsproject.org/qa/14105/ufl-condition-in-if-statement

I tried it. It works as in the following. Now I donot get NaN and problem converges. Thank you !

# Compute Igama
Igama = (2.0*(I1bar**2)-6.0*I2bar)
tolV=project(Constant("1E-14"),VF)
Igama=conditional(le(Igama,tolV), tolV, Igama) # required to avoid minus values in sqrt()
Igama = sqrt(Igama)/6.0
#
