Stress Dependent Oxidation : Stress Dependent Oxidation

Requires: SSuprem 4
Minimum Versions: Athena 5.21.2.R

This example demonstrates the use of SSuprem 4 stress dependent Visco-Elastic Oxidation model. Visco-Elastic, Stress Dependent Models take longer to run than the default ( COMPRESS ) oxidation model and therefore should only be used when specifically looking at oxides grown at a temperature of greater than 965C (viscous flow temperature), and when the oxide profile is critical. Oxidations in this example are performed with and without the stress dependence. The results of oxidation using the two models are plotted together using Tonyplot to compare the structures predicted by the two models.

To enable the stress dependent viscous model the syntax required is:
method viscous
oxide stress.dep=t
