Default Smagorinsky Dynamic Cosant in UDF

Hi, i'm performing some tests on the LES module of Fluent with the turbulent channel flow.

I wrote an UDF to export my data in an external file but i can't find the Dynamic Constant in the variables. That is:

C_U(c,t) is the x_velocity

C_V(c,t) is the y_velocity

C_W(c,t) is the w_velocity

what is the command for the Dynamic Constant?

If there is not such a command, do you know if the following one:

C_MU_T(c,t)

which is the turbulent viscosity, is also valid with the LES model?

Thanks

Hello,

If it is needed for postprocessing you can extract a dynamic constant Cd by

Cd = mu_t/(rho*SQR(delta)*S);

where

mu_t=C_MU_T(c,t);
rho=C_R(c,t);
delta=pow(C_VOLUME(c,t),0.333);
S=Strainrate_Mag(c,t);
