The problem is if you create a expresion of the form k1*x+k2*y+k3*z. CFX just added the different values of K together. In the solver output that can be seen as a value of K that correspond to k1+k2+k3. Making a expression is thus not a solution or CFX needs to have a function that a expresion can be made dependent of a direction in terms of e1,e2,e3
