Question Mixed derivatives in FVM

fabio77 is on a distinguished road
I'm developing a FV code implementing the triphasic theory of cartilage (poroelasticity + osmotic pressure). I'm a newbie with FVM, and I am stuck on discretizing the mixed derivative term (e.g. d2u/dxdy) which arises in the displacement formulation of the elasticity problem:

(lambda+mu)(d2u/dx2+d2v/dxdy)+mu*(d2u/dx2+d2u/dy2)+Fx=0 etc.

I would appreciate any suggestion.
