Constructor.

This constructor initializes the sizes within the object to parameter values.

Definition at line 24 of file vcs_prob.cpp.

## ◆ resizePhase()

 void resizePhase ( size_t nPhase, int force )

Resizes all of the phase lists within the structure.

Note, this doesn't change the number of phases in the problem. It will change NPHASE0 if nPhase is greater than NPHASE0.

Parameters
 nPhase size to dimension all the phase lists to force If true, this will dimension the size to be equal to nPhase even if nPhase is less than the current value of NPHASE0
Deprecated:
Unused. To be removed after Cantera 2.3.

References VCS_PROB::NPHASE0, and Cantera::warn_deprecated().

## ◆ resizeSpecies()

 void resizeSpecies ( size_t nsp, int force )

Resizes all of the species lists within the structure.

Note, this doesn't change the number of species in the problem. It will change NSPECIES0 if nsp is greater than NSPECIES0.

Parameters
 nsp size to dimension all the species lists to force If true, this will dimension the size to be equal to nsp even if nsp is less than the current value of NSPECIES0
Deprecated:

## ◆ resizeElements()

 void addPhaseElements ( vcs_VolPhase * volPhase )

Add elements to the local element list.

This routine sorts through the elements defined in the vcs_VolPhase object. It then adds the new elements to the VCS_PROB object, and creates a global map, which is stored in the vcs_VolPhase object. Id and matching of elements is done strictly via the element name, with case not mattering.

The routine also fills in the position of the element in the vcs_VolPhase object's ElGlobalIndex field.

Parameters
 volPhase Object containing the phase to be added. The elements in this phase are parsed for addition to the global element list

Definition at line 261 of file vcs_prob.cpp.

 size_t addElement ( const char * elNameNew, int elType, int elactive )

This routine resizes the number of elements in the VCS_PROB object by adding a new element to the end of the element list.

The element name is added. Formula vector entries ang element abundances for the new element are set to zero.

Parameters
 elNameNew New name of the element elType Type of the element elactive boolean indicating whether the element is active
Returns
the index number of the new element

Definition at line 288 of file vcs_prob.cpp.

 size_t addOnePhaseSpecies ( vcs_VolPhase * volPhase, size_t k, size_t kT )

This routines adds entries for the formula matrix for one species.

This routines adds entries for the formula matrix for this object for one species

This object also fills in the index filed, IndSpecies, within the volPhase object.

Parameters
