Hi all,
Does anyone know how the q criterion is normalized in Fluent?

I am not completely sure, but it seems that it is normalized by some strain rate magnitude measure. It goes without saying that it is completely wrong and, as a consequence, new Fluent versions also include the classical Q definition.
