velocity gradient issue in cfx
I'm trying to study shear rate in a simulation by generating the velocity gradient value in cfx. This value should have a dimension of inverse second. However, when I plot the magnitude of velocity gradient , I didn't find any unit there. So what's the definition of the variable "velocity gradient " in cfx?
Another question is about a variable， taking "velocity u. gradient" as an example, is it defined this way please?
velocity u. gradient=sqrt[(partial u/partial x)^2+(partial u/partial y)^2+(partial u/partial z)^2]?
Thanks a lot for your help in advance~!
Did you find out about the definition of Velocity u.Gradient x in cfx?
I almost have the same problem.
There is one more thing, how can I define (partial u)/(partial x) in CEL expressions? do you have any idea?
But the variable velocity u.gradient does have units of s^-1, as expected.
And yes, velocity u.gradient=sqrt(velocity u.gradient X^2+velocity u.gradient Y^2+velocity u.gradient Z^2).
Ali's question is quite different. Read the documentation about getting spatial derivatives of variables. There is built in functions to calculate this in CEL.
I found it in documentations
Thank you ghorrock
