a problem about user define scalars(uds)

Hi, all. Recently I want to use Fluent's user define scalars(uds) in a multiphase problem . I find that the uds in multiphase has the following formulation
http://hpce.iitm.ac.in/website/Manua...ug/img2694.gif

So I have a problem about the diffusion term. When I input the value "uds diffsivity" In "Create /Edit Material " should I multiply by the density and the voidage myself ? Or Fluent will auto multiply the voidage of the phase?
Can anybody help me? thanks.

As you can see in the uds equation, diffusivity should be given to Fluent in the form -- same units as dynamic viscosity (Pa.s).

Fluent takes care of multiplying by voidage itself.

Hi, So you mean that I should give the value "density multiply the diffusivity coefficention" and ignore the voidage thing, Did I get it? thanks.
