 December 12, 2003, 08:48 Rate of strain in a fluid #1 Tim Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I am trying to determine the value of strain in a fluid. A literature review leads me to: Sij = 1/2 (duj/dxi + dui/dxj) Some papers have |S| = sqrt(2 * Sij Sij) whilst others have |S| = sqrt (Sij Sij) Can anyone tell me which is correct. Thanks Tim.

I've seen, as you, both the other two defintions for the total strain. I would prefer people to use the one without 2.
