Let us suppose you have the following matrices:

x(nx,ny,nz): x coordinates of your grid

y(nx,ny,nz): y coordinates of your grid

z(nx,ny,nz): z coordinates of your grid

dudx(nx,ny,nz): x-wise derivative of x-wise velocity component

dudy(nx,ny,nz): y-wise derivative of x-wise velocity component
.
.
.
dwdz(nx,ny,nz): z-wise derivative of z-wise velocity component

This is, more or less, how i...
