the LHS of UEqn is as follows,
+ fvm::div(rhoPhi, U)
- fvm::laplacian(muEff, U)
- (fvc::grad(U) & fvc::grad(muEff))
I want to know the physical meaning of the last term,
(fvc::grad(U) & fvc::grad(muEff)) and wher it come form,
Hi Alvin, this term is due spatial variation of muEff. From the Cauchy equation you have for the viscous term div & [muEff*grad(U)], since muEff is not a constant, using the chain rule: muEff*laplacian(U)+grad(muEff)&U.
