definition norm of strain rate
the norm of the strain rate tensor is defined as mag(S) = sqrt( 2 * S_ij S_ij ) where S_ij = 1/2 ((grad(U)+grad(U)^T) = symm(grad(U)). OF defines mag(S) = sqrt(S_ij S_ij) , both expressions differ in the factor of sqrt(2).
However, it could be important for the determination of tau_ij in the turbulence models(i.e. Smagorinsky)!
Is it a possible bug?
We've finally got a proper bug reporting system :-)
