 February 8, 2007, 09:33 discretization of diffusive coefficient #1 Hendrik-Jan Guest   Posts: n/a hi there, I'm doing UDS transport modelling in Fluent and have a diffusion coefficient which is a strongly non-linear 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 Hendrik-Jan
