Dear CFD User,
I am not sure about whether shear-strain rate variable can be used as parameter to calculate the source term other than the calculation of dynamic viscosity for power law model.
Actually I have to use shear rate variable to calculate kL (mass transfer cofficient) for non-newtonian fluid based on theoretical equation.
