Mean Strain rate
I'm not an expert in fluid mechanics. In the SMAGORINSKY-model I need the square root of Sij*Sij. I'm a little confused about the different notations. What is the defference between the mean strain rate defined as:
and the mean strain rate defined as:
Some times I can read:
I would be very grateful for a short explanation.
Thank you very much!
That's simply tensor algebra (using the sum convention).
If you use the definition Sij=0.5*(dUi/dxj+dUj/dxi) , substitute it in s^2 =Sij*Sij and sum over i and j, you'l get the result
from the other expression,
S^2=Ui,jUi,j+ Uj,iUj,i = 4SijSij - 2Ui,jUj,i
so it is different due to the last term.
