calculation of laminar dynamic viscosity in BasicThermo.H
 
Hi All,

I have a question about the calculation of the laminar dynamic viscosity in BasicThermo.H. In BasicThermo.H, the variables mu_ is specified as:

00201 mu_
00202 (
00203 IOobject
00204 (
00205 "mu",
00206 mesh.time().timeName(),
00207 mesh,
00208 IOobject::NO_READ,
00209 IOobject::NO_WRITE
00210 ),
00211 mesh,
00212 dimensionSet(1, -1, -1, 0, 0)
00213 ),

I know this value should be calculated based on the setting in thermodynamic dictionary, but I do not know in which class the mu is calculated. Can anybody give some hints about this problem:confused:?

best regards,
H
