Transformation of volSymmTensorField to volTensorField
Is there a way to transform a existing volSymmTensorField to a volTensorField?
I want to implement a new turbulence model which is based on the use of the symmetric part of the mean velocity gradient Sij as well as the skew-symmetric ones Wij.
In my eyes - defining the symmetric part Sij is no big deal:
So far I guess it's because of the different number of components I used while defining with volSymmTensorField and volTensorField.
Therefore my quetion: Is there a way to transform a existing volSymmTensorField to a volTensorField?
But maybe there is a better way to deal with my problem? I'm grateful about every input!
Thanks a lot & greetings
It doesn't really answer my question but I found a way to solve my problem:
I had a further look at my eqautions and recognized that I'm multiply my new skew-symmetric tensor W with a symmetric ones b. After that I'm summing this product like (bW + Wb) which creates a symmetric tensor again. While implementing it like symm(bW+Wb) to the REqn all my problems with tmp<fvSymmTensorMatrix> dissapeared.
Maybe someone of you can help this.

A quick and dirty fix.
Just multiply with tensor(1,0,0,0,1,0,0,0,1)
too bad but if performance is not a concern go ahead, kill the CPU ;)
