absolute value of strain rate
 
hi
I am creating a user defined viscosity model in OF1.7; The problem is that I have to use absolute value of the strainRate as an argument for the "sqrt" command. when I use abs for this purpose, an error occurs:

shall I include any library in the .C file of my viscosity model?

it seems that there is mag() in OF instead of abs(). problem solved
thanks
