Modeling the microstructural evolution during constrained

To model constrained sintering, the evolution of the microstructure must depend on the local stresses in the sample. In the stress-free kMC model, sintering happens purely in response to the local environment, but when stresses are included in the model the microstructure must respond to events occurring further away in the sample.
