Detailed Description

template<int rank>
struct FEValuesExtractors::SymmetricTensor< rank >

Extractor for a symmetric tensor of a rank specified by the template argument. For a second order symmetric tensor, this represents a collection of (dim*dim + dim)/2 components of a vector- valued element. The value of dim is defined by the FEValues object the extractor is applied to. The result of applying an object of this type to an FEValues, FEFaceValues or FESubfaceValues object is of type FEValuesViews::SymmetricTensor.

The concept of extractors is defined in the documentation of the namespace FEValuesExtractors and in the Handling vector valued problems module.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

template<int rank>
SymmetricTensor< rank >::SymmetricTensor ( )

Default constructor. Initialize the object with an invalid component. This leads to an object that can not be used, but it allows objects of this kind to be put into arrays that require a default constructor upon resizing the array, and then later assigning a suitable object to each element of the array.

Definition at line 250 of file fe_values_extractors.h.

template<int rank>
SymmetricTensor< rank >::SymmetricTensor ( const unsigned int  first_tensor_component)

Constructor. Take the first component of the selected tensor inside the FEValues object as argument.
