A general spatial methods class, with default (trivial) behaviour for some spatial operations. All spatial methods will follow the general form of SpatialMethod in that they contain a method for broadcasting variables onto a mesh, a gradient operator, and a divergence operator.
mesh – Contains all the submeshes for discretisation
Implements the boundary integral for a spatial method.
child (pybamm.Symbol
) – The symbol to which is being integrated
discretised_child (pybamm.Symbol
) – The discretised symbol of the correct size
region (str) – The region of the boundary over which to integrate. If region is None (default) the integration is carried out over the entire boundary. If region is negative tab or positive tab then the integration is only carried out over the appropriate part of the boundary corresponding to the tab.
Contains the result of acting the discretised boundary integral on the child discretised_symbol
class: pybamm.Array
Returns the boundary value or flux using the approriate expression for the spatial method. To do this, we create a sparse vector ‘bv_vector’ that extracts either the first (for side=”left”) or last (for side=”right”) point from ‘discretised_child’.
symbol (pybamm.Symbol
) – The boundary value or flux symbol
discretised_child (pybamm.StateVector
) – The discretised variable from which to calculate the boundary value
bcs (dict (optional)) – The boundary conditions. If these are supplied and “use bcs” is True in the options, then these will be used to improve the accuracy of the extrapolation.
The variable representing the surface value.
Broadcast symbol to a specified domain.
symbol (pybamm.Symbol
) – The symbol to be broadcasted
