Viscous Fluxes in Finite Volume Method

Hello people. I have a question.

How are the viscous fluxes calculated in Finite Volume Method. Especially the ones close to the wall?

close to the wall you just have to account with boundary conditions, but the way to compute them are identical as in the domain.

For the discretization of diffusive flux, check books on finite volume.

More information on the treatment of the viscous fluxes on the walls.

Is this any different from the standart use of the ghost cells and the related methodology?
Is it possible to point on relavant information or to provide details?

Many thanks

you simply compute a lagrangian polynomial of some degree on an asymmetric stencil, the use the first derivative evaluated on the flux section.

Could you please provide some details or point to a relevant reference?
