stressComponents utility in LES calculations
I'm working on a 2d LES simulation on a channel flow. The model I use is the oneEqEddy, with the same settings of the pitzDaily LES pisoFoam tutorial. So, the matter I wish to investigate is about the meaning of the stressComponents utility output in a case such this: are these components referred to the Smagorinski stress tensor (TAUsgs)? If they not, what actually do they represent in a LES simulation?
Thank you in advance
