Syntax
public class SphericalHarmonicGravity : ForceModel, 
	IPartialDifferentiable, IEquatableDefinition

The SphericalHarmonicGravity type exposes the following members.

Constructors
  NameDescription
Public methodSphericalHarmonicGravity
Initializes a new instance.
Public methodSphericalHarmonicGravity(Point, SphericalHarmonicGravityField)
Initializes a new instance based on the given target point and gravity field data.
Protected methodSphericalHarmonicGravity(SphericalHarmonicGravity, CopyContext)
Initializes a new instance as a copy of an existing instance.

Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyDimension
Gets the dimension of the values produced by the object. For example, Vectors would have a dimension of three, and Scalars of one. A PartialDerivativesEvaluator created by this type will have a "RowDimension" equal to this property, and a "ColumnDimension equal to the summation of the dimensions of the independent variables that this object is dependent on.
Public propertyForceVector
Gets the Vector representation of this force.
(Inherited from ForceModel.)
Public propertyGravityField
Gets or sets the SphericalHarmonicGravityField to use when calculating the gravitational force.
Public propertyIsFrozen
Gets a value indicating whether this object is frozen. A frozen object cannot be modified and an ObjectFrozenException will be thrown if an attempt is made to do so.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Public propertyKind
Gets an enumeration indicating the nature of this force and whether it implicitly includes mass.
(Inherited from ForceModel.)
Public propertyRole
Gets the role that this force plays in a combined resultant force. In particular, it indicates whether this force is dominant and easy to compute or whether it is a small perturbation that is expensive to compute.
(Inherited from ForceModel.)
Public propertyTargetPoint
Gets or sets the target point at which to measure the gravitational acceleration.

Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodBuildForceEvaluator

Build lists of principal and perturbation forces based on this model in order to create an overall resultant force.

If IncludeTwoBodyGravity is set to true then a two body evaluator is added as a principal force and the perturbation gravity is assigned as a perturbation force. If include two body is set to false then only a perturbation force is added.

(Overrides ForceModelBuildForceEvaluator(ResultantForceBuilder, EvaluatorGroup).)
Protected methodCheckForSameDefinition(DefinitionalObject)
Checks to determine if another instance has the same definition as this instance and returns if it does. Derived classes MUST override this method and check all new fields introduced by the derived class for definitional equivalence. It is NOT necessary to check base class fields because the base class will already have done that. When overriding this method, you should NOT call the base implementation because it will return for all derived-class instances. Derived classes should check the type of other to preserve the symmetric nature of IsSameDefinition(Object).
(Inherited from ForceModel.)
Protected methodCheckForSameDefinition(ForceModel)
Checks to determine if another instance has the same definition as this instance and returns if it does. Derived classes MUST override this method and check all new fields introduced by the derived class for definitional equivalence. It is NOT necessary to check base class fields because the base class will already have done that. When overriding this method, you should NOT call the base implementation because it will return for all derived-class instances. Derived classes should check the type of other to preserve the symmetric nature of IsSameDefinition(Object).
(Overrides ForceModelCheckForSameDefinition(ForceModel).)
Protected methodCheckForSameDefinition(SphericalHarmonicGravity)
Checks to determine if another instance has the same definition as this instance and returns if it does. Derived classes MUST override this method and check all new fields introduced by the derived class for definitional equivalence. It is NOT necessary to check base class fields because the base class will already have done that. When overriding this method, you should NOT call the base implementation because it will return for all derived-class instances. Derived classes should check the type of other to preserve the symmetric nature of IsSameDefinition(Object).
Public methodClone
Clones this object using the specified context.
(Overrides DefinitionalObjectClone(CopyContext).)
Protected methodComputeCurrentDefinitionHashCode
Computes a hash code based on the current properties of this object. Derived classes MUST override this method and compute a hash code that combines: a unique hash code seed, the base implementation result, and the hash codes of all new fields introduced by the derived class which are used in the CheckForSameDefinition(DefinitionalObject) method.
(Overrides ForceModelComputeCurrentDefinitionHashCode.)
Public methodEnumerateDependencies
Enumerates the dependencies of this object by calling EnumerateT(T) for each object that this object directly depends upon. Derived classes which contain additional dependencies MUST override this method, call the base implementation, and enumerate dependencies introduced by the derived class.
(Overrides ForceModelEnumerateDependencies(DependencyEnumerator).)
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodFreeze
Freezes this object. Further attempts to modify it will result in an ObjectFrozenException.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Protected methodFreezeAggregatedObjects
Called by Freeze to also freeze any objects that are considered to be a part of this object. Derived classes which contain additional aggregated objects MUST override this method, call the base implementation, and freeze aggregated objects introduced by the derived class. The objects that need to be frozen in this method are frequently created in this object's constructor and are not settable via properties.
(Inherited from ForceModel.)
Public methodGetDefinitionHashCode
Gets a hash code representing the definition of this object.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Public methodGetForceEvaluator
Gets an instance of an evaluator that can compute the force.
(Inherited from ForceModel.)
Public methodGetForceEvaluator(EvaluatorGroup)
Gets an instance of an evaluator that can compute the force.
(Overrides ForceModelGetForceEvaluator(EvaluatorGroup).)
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as the default hash function.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetPartialDerivativesEvaluator
Gets an evaluator that calculates the partial derivatives of spherical harmonic gravity with respect to position.
Public methodGetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsSameDefinition
Determines if this object has the same definition as another object.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodThrowIfFrozen
Throws ObjectFrozenException if this object IsFrozen. This method should be called from any method or property that modifies this object.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Public methodToString
Returns a string that represents the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
