Fault tagging

In SeisSol, boundary conditions are tagged as:
0: regular
1: free surface
2: free surface + gravity (water surface)
3 or n>64: dynamic rupture
5: absorbing
6: periodic

Dynamic rupture can therefore be tagged using a range of possible tags. This allows initializing fault parameters segment-wise easily. For example, if we have 2 segments, and we want them to have different dynamic friction, we can tag them with 3 and 65 and then use:

[mu_d]: !Any
    - !GroupFilter
      groups: 3
      components: !ConstantMap
          mu_d:    0.3
    - !GroupFilter
      groups: 65
      components: !ConstantMap
          mu_d:    0.4

Currently, the only way to tag fault faces other tags than 3 with SimModeler is to use the –xml option of pumgen. For example, to tag face 2 as 3 and face 8 and 9 as 65, we would use:

<boundaryCondition tag="3">2</boundaryCondition>
<boundaryCondition tag="65">8,9</boundaryCondition>

Then pumgen is run using the xml option:

pumgen -s simmodsuite -l SimModelerLib.lic --xml MeshandAnalysisAttributes.xml prefix.smd output_prefix

Note that <boundaryCondition tag="3"> is equivalent to <dynamicRupture>. Therefore, if you want to tag face 2 as 3, you can use either:

<boundaryCondition tag="3">2</boundaryCondition>



Note also that if a face is tagged twice, only the first tag will be considered.

Using more than 189 dynamic rupture tags

Currently, SeisSol cannot handle more than 255 fault tags, that is 189 dynamic rupture tags. To overcome this limitation, it is necessary to patch PUMGen, SeisSol and the PUML submodule of SeisSol. This can be done with:

cd PUMGen
git apply $path_to_seissol/SeisSol/Documentation/patchesI64/patch_PUMGen.diff
cd SeisSol
git apply Documentation/patchesI64/patch_SeisSol.diff

and finally:

cd SeisSol/submodules/PUML/
git apply ../../Documentation/patchesI64/patch_PUML.diff

Meshes with more than 255 tags can be created using pumgen -xml option, e.g. :

<boundaryCondition tag="3">13245</boundaryCondition>
<boundaryCondition tag="900">12345,14325</boundaryCondition>
