Displaying Source terms
 
Hi

I am a University of Waterloo student and have a question regarding source terms.

I am prescribing a varying UDS source term in a column of cells. I would like to know what is the actual value of the source term applied in the single phase scalar equation (See UDF Manual/UDS Transport Modelling/Theory equation (11.2-1) ).

I know the value that is computed in my UDF, I can easily display that. But from my understanding, the value I prescribe with the DEFINE_SOURCE macro is then multiplied by the cell volume.

The column of cells where this source is applied has varying volumes. Is there some way to access the actual source term for the scalar?

Thanks,

Chris
