Default wall shear stress for laminar flow

vitorspadetoventurin is on a distinguished road
How can I calculate wall shear stress for laminar flow?

I think I can not use "wallShearStress"


"wallShearStress: Calculates and writes the wall shear stress, for the specified times when using RAS turbulence models."

Can you help me?

Best Regards,

Vitor Spadeto Venturin

Greetings Vitor,

I sense that the Google force is not strong in you
I used the following search expression in Google:
Code: wallshearstress laminar
and on the 6th link, I found this thread: wallShearStress, wallGradU are inconsistent - there, in post #2 is explained in detail that wallShearStress can also be used when the turbulence modelling is set to "laminar".

Best regards,
