ablation (1d, 2d, 3d)

Computes the surface evaporation parameters for a given material. The description of the parameters specific to ablation is given blelow:


= ablation
= 1. This should be true to vizulaize and utilize the evaluated variables in boundary conditions
= vector containing the surface temperature
option to chose the type of ablation model. currently implemented model is sonic, which assumes the vapor expands to sonic speed at the fluid interface.
numConstituents (integer)
is the number of material elements present inside the compound material.
satPressure (real)
The material specific variables of Claussius-Clapeyron equation to obtain the saturation pressure at a given temperature. Each element requires 3 constants reference pressure \((Pa)\), enthalpy of evaporation \((J/mol)\) and reference temperature \((K)\). If there are two elements in the cmpound material, the constants of the second element should be entered right after the first element.
moleFraction (real)
Molefractions of the constiTuents
averageMolecularWeight (real)
average molecular weight of the compound material
the result vector consisting of Density \((kg/m^3)\), velocity \((m/s)\), temperature \((K)\), pressure \((Pa)\), saturation pressure \((Pa)\), and number density \((1/m^3)\) of the compound material.
