discretization of diffusive coefficient
hi there,
I'm doing UDS transport modelling in Fluent and have a diffusion coefficient which is a strongly nonlinear function of the transported scalar. Does anyone know how the value of the diffusive coefficient is evaluated at the faces? The DEFINE_DIFFUSIVITY macro returns values for the cell centers, not for the faces. So I assume that the diffusive coefficient at the faces will be interpolated from the adjacent cell centers, but how? thanks in advance HendrikJan 
Re: discretization of diffusive coefficient
You should definie DEFINE_DIFFUSIVITY using user defined function. for example: DEFINE_DIFFUSIVITY(diffusivity_udf,cell,thread,i) { real przew; real T = C_T(cell, thread); if (T > 100.) { przew = 13990.; } else if ((T > 300.) && (T <= 1000.)) przew = 2.4430000000E25*T  1.9544000000E22; } else if ((T > 1000.) && (T <= 2000.)) {przew = 2.8795570000E22*T  2.5913570000E19; } else {przew = 22.} return przew; }
