◆ till_friction_angle() [2/2]

void pism::MohrCoulombYieldStress::till_friction_angle ( const IceModelVec2S bed_topography,
IceModelVec2S result 

Computes the till friction angle phi as a piecewise linear function of bed elevation, according to user options.

Computes the till friction angle \(\phi(x,y)\) at a location as the following increasing, piecewise-linear function of the bed elevation \(b(x,y)\). Let

\[ M = (\phi_{\text{max}} - \phi_{\text{min}}) / (b_{\text{max}} - b_{\text{min}}) \]

be the slope of the nontrivial part. Then

\[ \phi(x,y) = \begin{cases} \phi_{\text{min}}, & b(x,y) \le b_{\text{min}}, \\ \phi_{\text{min}} + (b(x,y) - b_{\text{min}}) \,M, & b_{\text{min}} < b(x,y) < b_{\text{max}}, \\ \phi_{\text{max}}, & b_{\text{max}} \le b(x,y), \end{cases} \]

where \(\phi_{\text{min}}=\)phi_min, \(\phi_{\text{max}}=\)phi_max, \(b_{\text{min}}=\)topg_min, \(b_{\text{max}}=\)topg_max.

The default values are vaguely suitable for Antarctica. See src/pism_config.cdl.
