 June 6, 2005, 14:27 UDS Source Term #1 Giordano Bruno Guest   Posts: n/a Hi to all fluent users, I've to define a source term, for an uds transport equation, with this expression: S=A*exp(B-C_UDSI(c,t, 0)) (A,B: costants) and I was wondering if this is right or if I've to use a linearized expression, since the exponential has an uds as argument??? Sorry for this stupid doubt!!! Regards, Giordano Bruno
