There are several ways to calculate it, have a look at this presentation by Andre Bakker for some explanation. __________________ Regards, Gijs

But in most cases your cells are not ideal (have nonOrtho and so on), so there is a distance between the linear flux and the face center which is called "skewness". See H.Jasaks PhD for detailed information. PS: skewness in Fluent is a different thing. Regards, Robert
