 June 17, 2008, 04:41 Defining a variable Viscosity ?? #1 MAB Guest   Posts: n/a Any idea of how to define viscosity of water to be a funcions of x coordinate? I want to increase the viscosity after a specified distance in horizontal direction. Any suggestion 'll be appreciated. Thanking in advance. MAB

For example: dynamic viscosity as a function of x coordinate times 2. ownvisc(X) A = 1.0 [Pa s] B = 1.0 [m] ownvisc=(A*(2*(X/B))) Make a CEL expression and edit this material on what you are working in!

(it has been easily done in starccm+) any further suggestion?(
