Transfer basal drag from one mesh to another mesh

Post by hanbinglele » 26 Sep 2016, 05:23

Hi, Elmer users

I simulated the basal drag coefficients from the Adjoint Inverse methods for a 3D mesh (See attached fig). The mesh is just for grounded ice as the feeding glacier of the Wordie Ice Shlef on the Western Antarctic Peninsula.

I am going to do sensitivity test about adding the ice shelf to the grounded ice by using the same basal drag from above running. Is it possible to transfer the basal drag coefficients from one mesh to another new one? Could we 'turn off' the ice shelf bottom part and just applying the basal drag on the grounded ice bottom?

If yes, how to do it?

Many thanks in advance!

Best regards,
Chen
