mpacts.particles. conecontrolpoint

In order to be able to use this module import it like this:

import mpacts.particles
#or assign it to a shorter name
import mpacts.particles as prt

ConeControlPoint Layout

Particle of type ConeControlPoint:

  • xBF (Point)
  • x (Point)
  • parentIndex (Index)
  • localIndex (Index)
  • r (Scalar)

Supported Commands

On the particle container following list of commands can be invoked.

Note

the pc keyword argument is passed automatically, as well as the parent if the pc is created with a parent.

mypc.CountPerParentCmd()
Command which counts how many elements (e.g. nodes) the given child-pc has.
Default location: ‘loop_cmds/pre_body_force_cmds’
  • Required keywords:
    • pc — Particle container on which the command is applied
  • Optional keywords:
    • count (default value = None) — Array in parent where the count is stored, by default made and called “count_“+pc()->name().
    • gate (default value = ET::ChildProperty const*) — Can decide to (temporarily) not execute the command in a CommandList. (Default is ExecuteAlways)
    • predicate (default value = None) — Predicate that will decide whether this command is executed for a specific particle, when absent the command is executed for every particle.
  • additional parameters (to quickly choose a gate to be applied):
    • executeOnce: If True, will set the ExecuteOnce gate
    • executeEvery: If given, will execute every “executeEvery” time-steps.
    • executeInterval: If given, will execute every interval seconds (approximate simulation time)
    • executeTimes: If given, will execute at times specified in the list provided (approximated to the nearest discrete time step!)
    • executeEveryPCSizeChange If given, will execute every time a specified particle container changes size.
  • parent: Can be set to ‘False’ or ‘0’ to explicitely prevent the command to be added to the (simulation) commandlist.
mypc.PCStatisticsCmd()
PCStatistics command
Default location: ‘loop_cmds/pre_contact_cmds/Periodic_BC_CopyToGhost_PeriodicBoundary1D’
  • Required keywords:
    • pc — Particle container on which the command is applied
  • Optional keywords:
    • gate (default value = ET::ChildProperty const*) — Can decide to (temporarily) not execute the command in a CommandList. (Default is ExecuteAlways)
    • predicate (default value = None) — Predicate that will decide whether this command is executed for a specific particle, when absent the command is executed for every particle.
  • additional parameters (to quickly choose a gate to be applied):
    • executeOnce: If True, will set the ExecuteOnce gate
    • executeEvery: If given, will execute every “executeEvery” time-steps.
    • executeInterval: If given, will execute every interval seconds (approximate simulation time)
    • executeTimes: If given, will execute at times specified in the list provided (approximated to the nearest discrete time step!)
    • executeEveryPCSizeChange If given, will execute every time a specified particle container changes size.
  • parent: Can be set to ‘False’ or ‘0’ to explicitely prevent the command to be added to the (simulation) commandlist.
mypc.TransformControlPointsCmd()
Transforms the controlpoints ‘xBF’ from body coordinates to inertial frame coordinates of a manager using the orientation ‘q’ and position ‘x’ of its parent. It will put these transformed coordinates in x, and generate this array if necessary.
Default location: ‘loop_cmds/pre_body_force_cmds’
  • Required keywords:
    • pc — Particle container on which the command is applied
  • Optional keywords:
    • gate (default value = ET::ChildProperty const*) — Can decide to (temporarily) not execute the command in a CommandList. (Default is ExecuteAlways)
    • predicate (default value = None) — Predicate that will decide whether this command is executed for a specific particle, when absent the command is executed for every particle.
    • xBF (default value = None) — Array of positions in body frame (Default: ‘xBF’)
    • x (default value = None) — Array of positions in inertial frame (Default: ‘x’)
  • additional parameters (to quickly choose a gate to be applied):
    • executeOnce: If True, will set the ExecuteOnce gate
    • executeEvery: If given, will execute every “executeEvery” time-steps.
    • executeInterval: If given, will execute every interval seconds (approximate simulation time)
    • executeTimes: If given, will execute at times specified in the list provided (approximated to the nearest discrete time step!)
    • executeEveryPCSizeChange If given, will execute every time a specified particle container changes size.
  • parent: Can be set to ‘False’ or ‘0’ to explicitely prevent the command to be added to the (simulation) commandlist.
