The MPI - Adaptive Mesh Refinement - Versatile Advection Code
Writing a custom analysis subroutine


Users can write a subroutine to freely derive (and print or store) quantities of interest from the entire grid. To activate this functionality, set the following in your usr_init routine:

subroutine usr_init()
usr_write_analysis => my_analysis
end subroutine usr_init

Setup in par file

Similar to the other IO-mechanisms, analysis is scheduled within the savelist:

        dtsave_custom = 0.1 ! Save every 0.1 time units
        ditsave_custom = 10 ! Save every 10 iterations

write_analysis subroutine

The user-defined analysis subroutine takes no arguments. It operates on the lowest abstraction level of MPI-AMRVAC so that the user has the flexibility to loop over the the SFC and freely perform integrals over the grid-functions, similar to the printlog_special. A special file-unit is reserved for the IO: unitanalysis. This should be used for any IO performed by this routine.

Example of analysis routine

subroutine my_analysis()
double precision :: tmp, wmax
integer :: iigrid, igrid, ierrmpi
tmp = 0
do iigrid = 1, igridstail
igrid = igrids(iigrid)
tmp = max(tmp, maxval(pw(igrid)%w(ixm^t, rho_)))
end do
call mpi_allreduce(tmp, wmax, 1, mpi_double_precision, &
mpi_max, icomm, ierrmpi)
print *, mype, global_time, "maximum density is", wmax
end subroutine my_analysis
