If you are using a finite volume type code then read Numerical Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow by Patankar.

A few questions you may want to ask yourself is:

1) Is the rate of change of the source term large?

if not then you may want to treat it explicitly

(Picard iteration)

[ I like to keep things simple ]

2) What is the realative magnitude of your source term

compared with your other terms? If you are using

an implicit method the source term may have a

large impact on your linear solver.

This may not be very much help but the answer really depends on the code you are using..

I use the finite difference type, the soures is non-inertia sourse term. In fact, I cauld deal with it using moving grid, But my tutor ask me to take the non-intertia as sourse term.
