 January 10, 2006, 10:18 some confusion about the inner product #1 ztdep Guest   Posts: n/a hi: i don not know how to caculate the (ui,uj) (,) means a inner product, but what exactly is the meanning of the inner product. where u is a matrix which record a two dimensional velocity field (only u velocity). regards

So don't confuse the the vector inner product with the way you store your data. The inner product at the point represented by the matrix indices (i,j) is (u(i,j)_x*u(i,j)_x + u(i,j)_y*u(i,j)_y). That is, inner products of the the velocities in the array are the array of inner products.

 January 11, 2006, 03:23 Re: some confusion about the inner product #5 ztdep Guest   Posts: n/a but what is the meaning of : discretised version of inner product ? i think i can use the simpson's rule in a one-dimensional region, but how to use it in a two-dimensional region.. i have confused between the matrix and a grid system in a lid-driven problem? regards

 January 11, 2006, 06:30 Re: some confusion about the inner product #6 TITAN Algorithms, Staff Guest   Posts: n/a Ztdep the inner product of a matrix (tensor) can be thought of as the analogy of a dot product of a vector. Example, the turbulence production rate: G = SQRT(Vi,j + Vj,i) * Vi,j)) is a scalar that is defined at each node or control volume in your simulation. It is the inner product of two tensors: Vi,j + Vj,i = GRAD(V.i).j + GRAD(V.j).i and Vj,i = GRAD(V.j).i where i and j indicate row and column format for a 3x3 matrix. The inner product takes each element of the matrix (tensor) and multiplies it by the adjoining element in the other matrix and sums it together to create the scalar.
