definition norm of strain rateHi,
the norm of the strain rate tensor is defined as mag(S) = sqrt( 2 * S_ij S_ij ) where S_ij = 1/2 ((grad(U)+grad(U)^T) = symm(grad(U)). OF defines mag(S) = sqrt(S_ij S_ij) , both expressions differ in the factor of sqrt(2). However, it could be important for the determination of tau_ij in the turbulence models(i.e. Smagorinsky)! Is it a possible bug? best regards Matthias |

We've finally got a proper bug reporting system :-)
Please report any OpenFOAM bugs on http://www.openfoam.com/bugs. Thanks, Mattijs |
