Hello users,
I am modeling pollutant transport in air (on street pollutant emission)
I need to include Turbulence caused by the movement of vehicles.
I have calculated the TKE values(m2/s2) from empirical studies. Now i need to input them in a specified zone in Fluent.

The Problem is the source term for TKE in Fluent requires a unit Kg/m-s3 while my values are in m2/s2.
Why does fluent ask for source term in kg/m-s3 ??
kg/m-s3 is not a unit of TKE..
Can anybody help??
