Hello All,

I am working on a unsteady laminar flow problem with pulsating input of velocity. The parameter i am interested in is wall shear stress and its average value.

The average value of wall shear stress and oscillatory shear index is defined by formulas in attachment.

I have Average value of wall shear stress and i want to know,how i can calculate the oscillatory shear index. I need to plot OSI in scalar plot.

what is your problem? you can just compute the time integrals as the simulation progress, then, at the end of the period T, you divide by T and get the ratio.

But in the OSI formula the numerator is Modulus of the average wall shear stress. My time limits lie between 1sec and 2sec.

how to implement this in simulation? and get the scalar plots.
