 December 15, 2007, 20:37 Surface reaction rate #1 Jon Guest   Posts: n/a Hello I want to model the O2 consumption on tissue surface as Michaelis-Menten equation, which states: R=Vm*Ci/(K+Ci) where Vm and K are constant and Ci is O2 concentration at the wall. In UDF (DEFINE_SR_RATE) Ci is defined by the molar concentration, therefore I have to convert it by multiplying the mass fraction of O2 by density and divide it by the molar weight, am I right?. I think the density must be defined at the centre not the face and in surface reaction is defined at the face, so how can I get the density at the cell centre? please help!!. Thanks

 December 19, 2007, 08:01 Re: Surface reaction rate #6 Judd Guest   Posts: n/a Thanks Saghir, i guess my problem is in the compiler, I will try to install a new one and try agin. many thanks, Hi Suribabu, my problem is mentioned in the first post here by Jon. Regards,
