Base class for Chrono solvers based on Eigen iterative linear solvers.

Iterative linear solvers.
Cannot handle VI and complementarity problems, so they cannot be used with NSC formulations.

All iterative solvers are implemented in a matrix-free context and rely on the system descriptor for the required SPMV operations. See ChSystemDescriptor for more information about the problem formulation and the data structures passed to the solver.

The default value for the maximum number of iterations is twice the matrrix size.

The threshold value specified through SetTolerance is used by the stopping criteria as an upper bound to the relative residual error: |Ax - b|/|b|. Default: machine precision.

By default, these solvers use a diagonal preconditioner and no warm start. Recall that the warm start option should be used only in conjunction with the Euler implicit linearized integrator.

Member Function Documentation

◆ Setup()

bool chrono::ChIterativeSolverLS::Setup ( ChSystemDescriptor sysd)

Perform the solver setup operations.

Here, sysd is the system description with constraints and variables. Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

Reimplemented from chrono::ChSolver.

◆ Solve()

double chrono::ChIterativeSolverLS::Solve ( ChSystemDescriptor sysd)

Performs the solution of the problem.

Return the maximum constraint violation after termination.

Implements chrono::ChSolver.

◆ SolveProblem()

virtual bool chrono::ChIterativeSolverLS::SolveProblem ( )
protectedpure virtual

Solve the linear system using the current factorization and right-hand side vector.

Load the solution vector (already of appropriate size) and return true if succesful.
