Detailed Description

This class enables defining phase change laws for a given material.

These laws are predefined for a certain number of materials. The user can set himself a specific behavior for his own materials by defining a class that inherits from PhaseChange. The derived class must has at least the member function

int EnthalpyToTemperature(real_t &H, real_t &T, real_t &gamma)

Member Function Documentation

◆ E2T()

int E2T ( real_t H,
real_t T,
real_t gamma 
)

Calculate temperature from enthalpy.

This member function is to be called in any equation class that needs phase change laws.

Parameters
[in]HEnthalpy value
[out]TCalculated temperature value
[out]gammaMaximal slope of the curve H -> T

◆ EnthalpyToTemperature()

virtual int EnthalpyToTemperature ( real_t H,
real_t T,
real_t gamma 
)
virtual

Virtual function to calculate temperature from enthalpy.

This member function must be implemented in any derived class in order to define user's own material laws.

Parameters
[in]HEnthalpy value
[out]TCalculated temperature value
[out]gammaMaximal slope of the curve H -> T
